Richard Pike, Wincanton

Pike1Within 10 months of installing AirWash Plus, dairy farmer Richard Pike was able to reduce milking times by 30 minutes, immediately saving an hour a day. With 160 cows in milk on average he has sold 9,350 literes of milk in the period and there have only been seven cases of mastitis. The somatic cell count has stayed below 120 since installation and Bactoscan has remained at 15 or below.

“AirWash Plus is a ‘no brainer’ for a tandem parlour,” says Richard. “With no pre-dip or dry wiping, milking is now simple but effective and the quality of our milk has been maintained at high levels.”
