Dairymaster, an Ireland-based manufacturer and supplier of advanced automated milking, feeding, cooling, slurry and heat detection equipment to dairy farms worldwide, announced that it has tripled its U.S. footprint by moving to a new facility in Cincinnati. The additional space equips the company to meet growing demand from U.S. dairy producers for its high-performance equipment. 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 U.S. by Select Sires Inc., the largest A.I. company in North America. Today, Select Detect systems are installed in 22 states and four provinces, covering herds that range in size from 80 cows to more than 3,000.
The announcement coincides with an Enterprise Ireland-supported trade mission to three southeast states that will be led by Ireland’s Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation, Richard Bruton. Enterprise Ireland is the government organization responsible for the development and growth of Irish businesses in world markets.
From its U.S. headquarters in Cincinnati, Dairymaster maintains a national network of dealers and has built a large base of U.S. 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 U.S. 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.
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 that allows dairy producers to monitor fertility data directly on their phone. PD
