A Sneak Peak at Green Cleaning

Green CleaningTM systems are being profiled at an open day on a Jindivick dairy farm on March 30. Green CleaningTM is a new system to clean milking machines that saves energy, water and chemicals. The farm at Jindivick is the first farm in the world to have a commercial system installed, with this example being supplied by GEA Farm Technologies.

Green CleaningTM systems operate at low temperatures, re-use the wash solutions and utilise energy efficient principles to deliver substantial operating cost savings for farmers - providing an effective hedge against rising power costs.

A team effort by AgVet Projects and The Future Ready Dairy Farms Project, the open day will provide dairy farmers & advisors with an opportunity to see what savings are possible in the cow shed using this new technology. “As power bills increase and farmers seek energy savings on farm, this technology will become increasingly important” said Gillian Hayman, Coordinator for the Future Ready Dairy Systems project.
