MbT (Milking by Time) digital row/rotation timer
Date: May 2021
MbT is QCONZ latest innovation hot off the press. Short for ‘Milking by Time, this digital row/rotation timer makes it easier to implement a MaxT milking strategy and is fast becoming a ‘must have’ in all Herringbone and Rotary dairies.
Once installed you can set the most efficient row/rotation time for your herd. The large MbT display allows you to watch the timer count up or down to the time set and milkers can easily see if they are overtime as the time display changes from green to red.
-Shorter milking times are easy to achieve
-It’s easy to train staff and maintain simple routines
-Happier healthier cows
Josh Wheeler the mastermind behind this invention, joined forces with @Innovag to design and produce the MbT digital milking timer. The MbT app which runs in conjunction with the timer was built by QCONZ.
