Crosthwaite 54 Unit Waikato Rotary

Over the last few years, Stuart and Sarah Crosthwaite have added more land and re-sown the majority of pasture on their Kergunyah South property in NE Victoria.  The last piece of the puzzle was a new milking complex.

After a trip to New Zealand in late 2010 to see what Waikato Milking Systems had available, the family decided to proceed with a 54 unit Waikato rotary platform and milking machine package.

The equipment was installed through Nichol Dairy Service and Welding, based in Wodonga, along with staff from Daviesway Pty Ltd and Waikato Milking Systems New Zealand.

The Crosthwaite Family are the first in Australia to purchase a complete Waikato package – milking machine and platform.

The beauty of this system is the integration – all parts are designed to fit together as they are all made by the one manufacturer.

The equipment includes:

  • Variable speed milk pump and vacuum pumps providing increased efficiency in power usage and milk cooling
  • Smart ECR - Electronic cluster removers
  • Smart Spray – an on platform teat spray system for each cow
  • Smart D-Tect - an early mastitis detection system.
