BouMatic’s Walk Up Milking Parlor – A Silent Star of World Dairy Expo

MADISON, Wisconsin – September 1, 2017 –-World Dairy Expo, a global dairy event held at the Alliant Energy Center in Madison, WI, attracts more than 70,000 attendees from over 90 countries. Madison, Wisconsin is also the US headquarters for BouMatic, a five-star sponsor of World Dairy Expo for over five decades. From October 3-7, 2017, you can find the BouMatic booth at EH 3801-3909 and 3703-3704. This year our booth will feature the new BouMatic SmartLite detacher, a BouMatic feed pusher, a milking robot and much more.

In addition to the World Dairy Expo booth, you can find a full BouMatic walk-up parlor as the featured and only milking parlor on site. The BouMatic milking parlor can be found in the New Holland Pavilion.

In 2014, the Alliant Energy Center updated and expanded their facilities to include a brand new walk-up parlor provided by BouMatic. The pavilion includes a 2 by 12 walk-up parlor for milking cows during World Dairy Expo. The parlor is available for all cattle on grounds to use – in 2016, there were 2,434 cattle at World Dairy Expo. The cattle came from 37 US States, 9 Canadian provinces and 1 Mexican state. The cattle milked at the BouMatic milking parlor includes the best of North American cattle. The parlor is also used during the Dane County Fair and the Wisconsin Holstein Association Midwest National Show.

“It is an honor to have BouMatic’s top of the line milking technology showcased during the world’s largest dairy event. We are proud to show how trustworthy a BouMatic milking parlor is and love getting to share that with dairy producers around the world,” stated Mike Connell, director of sales.

This design allows exhibitors to move in and out of the milking center as they wish without disrupting the milking process for others. BouMatic strives to always milk cows gently, quickly and completely which you can see throughout the parlor. To ensure cow comfort, the stall size is increased allowing for better vision lines.

“Milking gently, quickly and completely is at the core of every decision BouMatic makes regarding product creation and maintenance. Cow comfort is our top priority,” Connell said. “The milking parlor has created a relaxing, stress free environment for the exhibitors and cows during a very busy tradeshow.”

 Each stall of the BouMatic milking parlor includes a Flo-Star Max claw with Magnum M lines, HiFlo Evolution pulsators and SmartControl milk meter connected to BouMatic’s SmartDairy control system. Milk data is collected for every individual cow and exhibitor. The milking parlor will also be open to the public with opportunities for personal tours. As producers review the facility layout, they may discover solutions for their own facility.  They can observe cow flow, equipment placement and system functionality. 

“BouMatic is constantly striving to be on the cutting edge of the latest dairy technology to bring the latest innovation to our products. BouMatic is poised to help the world’s dairies succeed, merging technical strength with a global distribution system for a bright future,” remarked Connell.

ELITE MILKING PARLOR FOR THE WORLD’S ELITE COWS

9th September 2014 - Publicado en: Actualizaciones de BouMatic, Comunicados de Prensa

Madison, WI (September 8, 2014)

 

As some of the world's finest dairy cattle step foot into the New Holland Pavilions at World Dairy Expo, the cows will be milked in an ultramodern new parlor system.  For more than 30 years, BouMatic has provided the milking equipment set-up and service for World Dairy Expo through continuous technology evolutions.

 

"BouMatic is very honored to be such an integral part of the world's biggest dairy event," stated Troy Esser, product support manager.

 

While cattle numbers keep growing at World Dairy Expo, BouMatic makes on-going efforts to increase the capacity of the show's milking center.  Their priority is to allow convenience and flexibility for the dairy exhibitors.  The new milking area has increased by six stalls - going from a double 9 to a now, double 12.

 

The stall type remains very similar to the previous design with a single cow walk-up.  This allows for exhibitors to move in and out of the milking center at their own pace without disrupting the milking process for other exhibitors.  The stall type is a custom design and works well for the application of individual cows with individual milking personnel.

 

New features to the milking parlor include an enhanced stall system.  The milking equipment compartment between the milking sides has been widened to three feet.  This will keep cows farther apart (head to head) and allow space to position all the milking system piping and equipment below the main stall railing.  The milking equipment compartment will be enclosed with shrouding to protect the cows and equipment from each other.

 

BouMatic strives for the milking session to be convenient, efficient and comfortable for both the exhibitor and the cow.  Cow comfort is top priority to World Dairy Expo exhibitors.  Therefore, stall size has been increased to allow better vision lines.  Because cleanliness is also every important at the show, stall cleaning will be more convenient and faster than ever.  Milking system components are built into customized cabinets to maintain sanitation and a polished looking milking facility.

 

"The primary goals are always to milk cows quickly, gently and completely, but we also want the environment to be friendly and inviting for the cows, exhibitors and visitors," Esser said.  "Exhibitors and cows are under enough stress during the show so we want the milking experience to be simple, relaxing and stress free."

 

The facility will be outfitted and maintained with the latest equipment, including many that are energy efficient.  Milk coolers have been updated with new high capacity, highly efficient refrigeration systems to handle the impressive milk flow rates from some of the best, high performing cows of the world.  The milking system contains consistent systems to ensure that there is never any down time during the weeklong event.

 

As the new milking center is introduced at the show, the milking equipment and process will remain the same as in past years.  Each stall includes a Flo-Star Max claw with Magnum M liners, HiFlo Evolution pulsators and SmartControl milk meter connected to BouMatic's SmartDairy control system.  Milk data is collected for every individual cow and exhibitor.

 

"We're always looking for ways to adapt new technologies to the World Dairy Expo milking center, to add more convenience and information to the milking experience," Esser said.  "The milking parlor is centrally located with an enhanced spectator viewing area."

 

The milking facility will be open to the public during the show, with opportunities for personal tours.  As producers review the facility layout, they may discover solutions for their own facility.  They can observe cow flow, equipment placement and system functionality.  Identification cards will also be placed on primary equipment.

 

On your own dairy

When building a new parlor there are many factors to consider and no two dairies have the same requirements or objectives.  The BouMatic Dairy Solutions parlor-planning process takes into account over 50 key points.  These solutions will support decisions when looking to choose the milking facility that is right for your dairy.  Partnerships are an important factor to consider when building a new dairy facility or remodeling an older parlor.  BouMatic dealers are trained in system design, installation and service.

 

"It's not just about selling a system and walking away," Esser noted.  "We look at every system sale as a lifetime commitment for service to insure that the equipment is not only installed correctly, but that it continues to work at peak operating performance for life of the parlor."

 

In 2014, BouMatic celebrates 75 years of helping dairy farmers harvest milk gently, quickly and completely.  The company serves dairy operators in more than 45 countries and employs 400 people worldwide.  Its global headquarters are in Madison, Wisconsin, USA.  To learn more about BouMatic, please visit:  http:www.boumatic.com.
