November 13, 2012, Hanover, Germany – At EuroTier 2012, a European trade show dedicated to agriculture, DeLaval’s barn system controller (BSC) was awarded the EuroTier silver medal for innovation.

“Sustainability, user-friendliness and optimal animal welfare have been the three primary objectives throughout our product development phase,” said Emmanuel Geoffroy, business development manager portfolio effluent housing systems at DeLaval. “This medal recognizes the importance of these objectives but it also demonstrates that DeLaval, as a company, is committed to improving cow comfort and animal welfare by delivering complete and integrated solutions.”

The BSC integrates barn environment and cow comfort to ensure healthy, productive cows and maximum milk yield. It’s an integrated control system to handle all barn applications in one unit. Barn environment technologies – like panels, curtains, circulating fans, illumination, cow cooling, alley cleaning, gutter cleaning, manure separation and manure transfer – are all handled in an integrated system.
