Western Valley Farm #4

The Boon family milks 850 cows, 3x/day on their dairy using the latest in batch milking technology. Their double-20 Champion™ Parallel parlor is outfitted with MM27BC milk meters featuring blood conductivity monitoring, MC7 claws, and 06 shells with fast yet gentle-milking Clover™ liners. Cow comfort is obviously a priority on the farm as seen with the installation of a DSG10 sort gate, an AFB1000 automated footbath and Swinging Cow Brushes. The Boons merge all of the data from many of these solutions in ALPRO herd management software, helping them make informed decisions about what’s best for their cows and business.
