The cell count sensor GEA DairyMilk M6850 has won the Audience Award as “Novelty of the Year” at EuroTier 2018. It is the world's first real-time system for effective early detection of mastitis in each individual quarter during the overall milking process. Because the measurement is performed using a robust, purely physical and patented measuring method (EPT principle = Electrical Permittivity Threshold), the GEA DairyMilk M6850 is particularly low-maintenance, reliable and comes out without any consumables.
The election for the “Novelty of the Year” has been one of the highlights of the trade fair program for many years. "We are particularly pleased about the Audience Award for the GEA DairyMilk M6850, because it shows that we have hit the bull’s eye with our development. Close contact with our agricultural customers is an enormously important source of product development for us. The Audience Award as "Novelty of the Year" is therefore also an honor for the long-standing and constructive partnership with dealers and farmers", says Christian Müller, Head of Product Group Management Milking & Dairy Farming at GEA.
The cell count sensor GEA DairyMilk M6850 is part of the product portfolio for automatic milking at GEA. It can be optionally installed in both DairyProQ and Monobox systems. In conjunction with the herd management, it also offers a significant reduction in workload by following actions such as the selection or assessment of the animals at the next milking. With the upgrade kit of the GEA DairyMilk M6850, also existing systems can be retrofitted.
