Dairymaster, an Ireland-based manufacturer and supplier of advanced automated milking, feeding, cooling, slurry and heat detection equipment to dairy farms worldwide, today announced that it has tripled its US footprint by moving to a new facility in Cincinnati.
Fueling the growth is widespread adoption of Dairymaster’s Select Detect product by dairy producers in the U.S. and Canada. Select Detect is a detection and fertility monitoring system that is sold exclusively in the US by Select Sires Inc., the largest A.I. company in North America. Today, Select Detect systems are installed in 22 states and four Canadian Provinces, covering herds that range in size from 80 cows to more than 3,000.
The U.S. market is a priority for Dairymaster according to the company’s Technical Director, Dr. Edmond Harty: "Dairy Producers in the U.S. appreciate our equipment for its technology sophistication and the fact that the company focuses on improving profitability and sustainability in dairy farming while increasing the enjoyment factor. Now through our valued partnership with Select Sires, we can also equip them with the industry’s best fertility management system."
This October at the World Dairy Expo in Madison, Wisconsin Dairymaster will release the Select Detect new mobile app, the first of its kind in the industry which allows dairy producers to monitor fertility data directly on their phone.
From its U.S. headquarters in Cincinnati, Dairymaster maintains a national network of dealers and has built a large base of US customers. This includes Select Sires’ network of 10 farmer-owned cooperatives. Central to its offerings is a focus on research and development, and a commitment to increasing the performance of its equipment through cutting-edge technology innovation.
The company continually enhances its products, adding advanced technology that measures, monitors and analyzes performance of the milking parlor in order to make dairy farming more profitable by reducing long term costs and labor inputs. Its most popular products in the US are the Swiftflo Swing and Swiftflo Revolver Rotary milking parlors due to the unique performance, cow comfort and efficiency advantages from the Dairymaster milking system.
