Improving milk harvesting efficiency

The online tool designed to make milking easier and more efficient for the New Zealand dairy farmer. Farmers identify areas of improvement through self-assessments, and use the tools and guidelines provided to implement change on farm.

Milksmart is concerned not only with milking, but with the whole milk harvesting process, from collecting the cows from the paddock and milking, to clean-up and the return of the cows.

The smallest change in the dairy shed can stack up to important savings in both time and costs over a whole season.

The programme allows a farmer to complete a comprehensive self-assessment of the milk harvesting operation and then compare their performance against other farmers.

Having made the comparisons and identified areas in which greater efficiencies may be achieved, Milksmart provides a comprehensive set of guidelines containing suggestions for improvement.
