Rethink Cups On with iCR+ Intelligent Cluster Removers

If you could cut cupping times by 1-2 seconds per cow, how much time would you save during milking?

For Waikato dairy farmer, Dries Verrycken, who is milking 500 cows, he can now save around 16 minutes at cups-on alone, thanks to the new iCR+ with EasyStart simple lift or pull vacuum activation.

That’s over 30 minutes a day and over 3.5 hours a week in his 50-bail iFLOW rotary. This means his cows can be back out to pasture quicker, and he can get on with other jobs.

Sound good? It is. Time to rethink how you put the cups on? We can help.
