Waikato Milking Systems grew out of a close relationship in the heart of dairy farming, the Waikato. Over time, Waikato Milking Systems developed a specialist focus on dairy systems and technology, first to Waikato farmers and over time to the rest of the world. They have always worked with farmers to refine and develop new ideas. The only difference today is that the farmer feedback comes from all over the world.

 

       The components function in sync with each other and together deliver a fully

      integrated milking operation. It’s given me an ideal milking environment now but still allows me to add new technologies down the track.”

 

When Waikato Milking Systems was first formed more than 30 years ago, their core purpose was designing new technology for dairy farmers. They remain true to this outcome today, investing in research and development to continually deliver even better results for farmers.

        Initially I was concerned that it’d be difficult to learn how to use the new

        technology but it was simple and straight forward. The cup remover auto-start triggers all of the milking functions and one switch activates the cleaning system at the end of milking.

Examples of innovation include their modern Smart range of products, using automation in the dairy to save farmers time, money and manpower. Another example is their world first use of the extra strong and lightweight material Kevlar in our Centrus Rotary Platforms. These platforms are ideal for sites with complex geotechnical issues and for earthquake prone areas, giving farmers more flexibility and choice.

Today Waikato Milking Systems is 100% owned by New Zealanders, who are passionate about dairy farming and about improving technology for farmers. The company continues to grow and currently sells throughout New Zealand while exporting to more than 20 countries. Our national and international presence confirms our reputation for products that deliver results - proven in the field.

 

        The platform offers great cow flow which allowed the cows to

        quickly adapt to the new shed. By the third milking they were settled and walking on by themselves."
