The cost-effective way to measure milk volume
The Waikato Milking Systems Yield Indicator is a cost-effective unit that measures your milk volume with an accuracy of within +/- 10% for an individual milking and within +/- 5% over 10 milkings*.
This allows you to monitor every animal’s milking performance and make accurate animal yield comparisons to improve your herd management decisions. The Yield Indicator works in conjunction with the milking point controller, by counting and timing milk slugs across the internal probes. Featuring no moving parts and a single long-life gasket, the robust design of the Yield Indicator ensures reliability with low maintenance and operational costs. The unit’s ingress protection rating (IP) makes it suitable for use within all milking parlour environments.
By providing you with milk volume data, the Yield Indicator allows you to understand which animals are the highest and lowest performers so you can make more informed management decisions - at an entry level price.
