DeLaval is launching the Evanza milking cluster and cartridge in the UK and Ireland.

The DeLaval Evanza milking cluster is the first cluster in the world to utilize a cartridge instead of a liner. It contains a newly-designed claw with redesigned TopFlow technology and a quick-connection between the claw and teat-cup.

The company said the milking cluster and Evanza cartridge will bring benefits to farmers and cows in terms of improvements in performance, animal welfare, service, ergonomics and reliability.

Farms where the new Evanza milking cluster and cartridge were tested, saw an increase in milk flow of up to 9.3%. The attachment also means a reduced milking time of up to 30 minutes per milking session.

In addition, teat condition scoring has improved together with a 50% reduced service time. The cartridge change is done three times faster than a conventional liner change, saving time and resources.

Paul Löfgren, EVP Cluster Europe, the Middle East and Africa at DeLaval, said, “Innovation is in our blood and is central to the continuous support to our customers.

The new Evanza, a revolutionary combination of a milking cluster and cartridge liners, becomes a strong statement from DeLaval in the relentless path to support farmers around the globe to become more efficient, profitable and deliver the food safety and animal welfare required in the dairy industry.”

The Evanza Cluster will be available in the UK from October 2019, with Ireland added in 2020.
