Parlor Automation

The Afimilk MPC or Milking Point Controller gives producers a hugely valuable tool to investigate milking and parlor efficiency. Alongside herd evaluation software, you’ll receive valuable information like milk conductivity, individual animal production, milk flow, insights on bimodality, and adherence to milking protocols just to name a few! Afimilk meters are specifically designed to keep a continuous vacuum and not cause fluctuations that are harmful to the teat ends.

Key Applications

Afimilk MPC

Afimilk-MPC.gif

Exceptionally accurate device for milk yield and conductivity monitoring and recording


The ICAR-approved Afimilk MPC Milk Meter provides full control over the milking process. Its state-of-the-art conductivity sensor is used for effective and early detection of mastitis, and to reduce the damage caused by udder disease.

SARA Detection

Sara-detection-1.gif

The AfiLab Solution


Using the AfiLab sensor, Afimilk monitors changes in fat components. Applied at the group level, it provides an accurate indication of SARA – encouraging early and effective treatment.  Changes to feed should be investigated for groups displaying potential SARA symptoms.

Milk Point Controller

The Afimilk MPC (Milk Point Controller), provides important features and alerts for milking operators:

  • Quality milking – built to provide the necessary protection against damaging vacuum fluctuations

  • Cluster removal – accurate, adjustable thresholds for automatic stoppage of milking when milk flow decreases; timed vacuum closure guarantees smooth release of cluster from udder.

  • Pulsation – choose basic control to configure rates and ratios, or advanced flow-controlled pulsation to automatically adjust pulsation according to milk flow.

Prevention Loss

Vital Knowhow in Every Drop - Maintain Top Quality Milk


Prevent the loss of bulk milk
There is nothing more frustrating than having to throw away a whole tank due to a load of contaminated milk. Afimilk’s In-Line Milk Lab is your insurance policy for preventing bulk milk contamination:


•Colostrum – can be blocked from milking.
Milk from a cow with antibiotic treatment – can be blocked from milking.
Blood in the milk – can be detected by AfiLab to quickly stop milking.

Mastitis Detection

Mastitis Detection


Mastitis is one of the greatest cost drivers of cow health. Early detection is vital for effective treatment, preventing production loss, and avoiding cross-contamination to healthy animals.


Consequences of Mastitis:
•    Reduced production,
•    Late detection causes chronic damage,
•    Difficult impregnation,
•    Major reason for involuntary culling,
•    Cost estimate: $130/year/cow.

Animal Sorting

AfiSort - A Better Way to Manage Your Animals


Fetching cows from their barn for treatment is an intensive task for farm staff and a stressful event for the entire group. The AfiSort system changes that by letting you automatically sort animals for a treatment plan.

Ketosis Dectection

Ketosis-detection.gif

The Afimilk Solution


Afimilk excels at early detection of ketosis. Ketotic cows present increased levels of fat in their milk and decreased levels of protein. AfiLab milk analyzer measures milk components and AfiFarm software identifies when fat-to-protein ratios surpass 1.4; a reliable indication of a ketotic cow. Milk is monitored three times daily for sensitive and accurate results.


•  Ketosis damage: production impact, late pregnancies, negative selection (increased exit of high-yielding cows).
•  Prevalence: 25-40% of fresh cows.


•  Damage cost estimate: $400 for ketotic cows; an average of $100/year/cow.

Precision Milking

Precision-milking-1.gif

Precision Milking – Save Labor, Improve Udder Health!


Afimilk MPC is a highly advanced milk meter that collects detailed, minute-by-minute data about cluster attachments, flow rates, milking curves, and milking times.

These data point, in turn, serve to assess parlor operation, procedures and milking efficiency. AfiFarm’s milking efficiency module can help you coach and monitor the parlor team and improve the way they are milking.

Cow Monitoring

As qualified cow managers become harder to find, producers face challenges maintaining their herds at an optimum level. Using a cow monitoring system can alleviate extra leg work in getting daily tasks accomplished. For example; eliminating the need to tail chalk and visually record heats as well as manually checking all sick and fresh cows narrows down the tasks for those highly qualified managers.

Key Applications

Eating & Rumination


AfiCollar continuously monitors the eating patterns of the cows and heifers as well as the rumination time. Each activity provides information about the animal’s health, and changes might indicate a disease sign or a change in the animal’s wellbeing.

The advanced neck sensor provides insights on:​

  • rumination

  • eating

  • the combination of rumination and eating

  • All of the above is provided per individual cow and per group for broader analysis.

Eating & Rumination

Group Comfort


A thorough understanding of the state of each animal is essential for its welfare, and so is a comprehensive understanding of the group or herd as a whole.

With the AfiCollar the digestion patterns are monitored individually and per the entire group. offering information at a higher level for efficient management.

Main benefits of group monitoring:

  • Detection of daily changes in groups’ digestion status

  • Monitoring of health and well-being of per group of animals

  • Nutrition indication for required adaptations that might affect the health of the entire herd and consequently affect milk production.
