DeLaval is investing in the future of dairy farming by developing its own high-tech farm, Hamra Farm with a new state-of-the-art barn, including new milking robots and increased focus on animal welfare.
-The new barns are built with animal welfare as the top priority. The new modern technology will not only increase efficiency but ensure the best possible care for our animals, Joakim Rosengren, DeLaval President & CEO, says.
Hamra Farm is a commercially driven farm located near the DeLaval headquarters, south of Stockholm in Sweden. In addition, Hamra Farm is a showcase farm for customers and other key people in the dairy value chain, with about 3,000 visitors every year.
The plan is to almost double the number of milking cows, from 260 to 550. The farm will utilise some of today’s most innovative milking solutions, including four milking robots ─ DeLaval VMS™ V300. The development plan also includes modernised barns for calves and heifers and updated visitor areas, all located in the existing farm area. It is expected to be ready in 2022.
