  1. 1. Brussels 29 th June 2011 Dairy Farm Productivity Elements Arto Pohto Pellon Group Oy
  2. 2. <ul><li>The Pellon-Group offers complete solutions for the needs of dairy, pork and beef production as well as stables and indoor riding arenas. </li></ul><ul><li>The solutions increase the productivity of the farm and improve the welfare of animals. </li></ul><ul><li>Leading manufacturer of automated feeding systems. </li></ul>Cattle Husbandry – Pig Husbandry – Horse Husbandry
  3. 3. <ul><li>The result of long-term and ongoing cooperation with numerous universities and research centres. </li></ul><ul><li>This cooperation has resulted in the forming of a unique product family offering flexible and complete solutions for the individual needs of each customer. </li></ul>Frontrunner in technology
  4. 4. <ul><li>Automated Feeding </li></ul><ul><li>Production Management </li></ul><ul><li>Optimal Conditions </li></ul><ul><li>Energy optimizing </li></ul><ul><li>Manure Processing </li></ul>Dairy Farm Productivity Elements
  5. 5. <ul><li>Automated feeding, 24/7, according to the natural feeding cycles frees the human resources at the farm </li></ul><ul><li>More time to monitoring, observing and looking after the cattle, away from tractor work and pushing feed closer to the cows </li></ul>Feeding automation reduces workload
  6. 6. <ul><li>Animal is able to enjoy a continuous supply of fresh feed mix all-year-round without barn-air ammonium </li></ul><ul><li>Automated feeding is accurate </li></ul><ul><li>Cows can be devided into groups, each group has its own feeding plan based on the production period and needs of the animals </li></ul><ul><li>Groups: dry cows, cows under observation, high milk yield cows, stable milk yield cows, young cattle </li></ul>Multiple daily feeding times increase milk yield
  7. 7. <ul><li>Saves building costs </li></ul><ul><li>In addition, capital tied up in the farm’s feeding tractor and feed wagon can be redirected to automation investments </li></ul><ul><li>Prevent cows from pushing the feed too far away </li></ul>Narrow feeding table
  8. 8. <ul><li>Flexible feeder lines linked into chains and cross conveyors can be used between different buildings </li></ul><ul><li>This allows unrestricted planning of animal traffic and enbles the use of several feeding groups for increased milk yield and improved animal welfare </li></ul>Revolutionary feeder lines
  9. 9. <ul><li>Stress free feeding for each individual of a milking group </li></ul><ul><li>Improved cow traffic </li></ul><ul><li>Increased milking robot capacity </li></ul><ul><li>Reduce animal elimination </li></ul><ul><li>Reduces the workload </li></ul>Automated feeding supports robot milking
  10. 10. <ul><li>Controlling dairy farm tasks and animal data using one program </li></ul><ul><li>Implementing the automation is simple </li></ul><ul><li>Versatile animal recognition </li></ul><ul><li>Overall control of feeding </li></ul><ul><li>Utilising milking data </li></ul><ul><li>Analysis of health data </li></ul>Production Management System
  11. 11. <ul><li>Animal control </li></ul><ul><li>Financial analysis </li></ul><ul><li>Breeding plans </li></ul><ul><li>Daily barn task lists </li></ul><ul><li>Improved utilisation of cattle </li></ul>Production Management System
  12. 12. <ul><li>Funktional production facility, animal friendly and good working environment </li></ul><ul><li>Soft rubber mats </li></ul><ul><li>Soft but robust lying area, bedding distribution by belts integrated to belt feeding system </li></ul>Optimal Conditions
  13. 13. <ul><li>Manure removing by scrapers </li></ul><ul><li>Cooling the manure channels reduce the bacterial gas production </li></ul><ul><li>Automated feeding reduces hygiene risks in the barn: The feed transport takes place on the ”second floor”, cows, people and possible machines move on the ”first floor” </li></ul>Optimal Conditions: Cleanliness
  14. 14. <ul><li>Energy recovery: from manure channels, drilled wells, ground circles, bodies of water </li></ul><ul><li>Energy use: heating floors, drinking water, grey water, washing water, cooling the barn </li></ul>Energy optimizing by ground source heat pump
  15. 15. <ul><li>Microbiology mediated technology </li></ul><ul><li>Decreases the odour of liquid manure </li></ul><ul><li>Enables fractionation of the processed manure to organic matter, water and concentrated phosphorus and nitrogen fertilizers </li></ul>Manure processing
