DairyFlo - Milking Liners | What are the Cost Benefits?
 

DairyFlo Liners Case Study

From 1st July to the 7th of September this shed would have completed 2500 milking cycles, and again late in November. That’s the equivalent of 3 changes of rubber liners per season.

WHAT ARE THE COST BENEFITS?

DairyFlo soft plastic liners have proven to outlast other liners because they do not absorb any milk fats or chemicals. They are extremely impact resistant and UV resistant meaning the surface of the liner will not break down or crack. Typically, Dairyflo liners will last one complete season, in some cases two seasons depending on herd size to shed capacity.

From 1st July to the 7th of September this shed would have completed 2500 milking cycles, and again late in November. That’s the equivalent of 3 changes of rubber liners per season. In contrast, one complete set of DairyFlo liners is expected to last the full season.

Typically, DairyFlo liners will last one complete season, in some cases two seasons depending on herd size to shed capacity with annual savings of $750.00*

I like it how the tubing and liner cling onto the stainless steel better now we don't have air and milk lines coming off anymore.

5000 + MILKINGS
ZERO BACTERIA

We set out to prove that DairyFlo soft plastic liners are the most hygienic option by conducting a simple test involving six DairyFlo liners. After 5400 milkings, we sent the 6 liners off to Hills Laboratories where they were tested for accumulation of bacteria.

It wasn’t a surprise to us that the tests showed the DairyFlo liners contained no traces of residual bacteria at all.
