Presto Detacher


Cow, group and herd information on milk production, milk quality, health, milk flow rates and unit on time is available at cow-side with the Presto Detacher or is summarized one of the Herd Tracker Dairy Management Systems to simplify decisions on herd, parlor and operator management. This is an essential tool when milking fresh cows or whenever information is needed on the spot.  The Presto uses the patented 'Smart Sensing' technology to monitor milk quality and quantity and to provide consistency of attaching and detaching for every cow at every milk session.

  • Fits all equipment stall configuration
  • Upgrades existing detacher components
  • Can be installed in steps (Modular Design)
  • Can be installed one at a time
  • Is simple to maintain
  • Easily upgrades to individual cow RFID tag

The Presto Detacher can be installed on new parlors, but is also a effective upgrade for Westfalia-Surge, DeLaval, BouMatic, Germania, Afikim, Universal and other brands of detachers where existing shift (control) valves and retractor cylinders can be used. The Presto™ powers the existing vacuum or compressed air shifting (control) valves.

Information on milk production and quality; health of the cow and milk flow patterns is available at the cow-side for making decisions on health management, sorting and even for changing setting on detacher. Alert lights combined with flashing data on the screen advises on exception cows. The Presto even tells you when to attach the claw when using the Prep Timer feature.

The wide range of detacher settings can duplicate the flow rate settings of other brands of detachers, so that one Presto Detacher can be installated one-at-a-time (per week/month/etc..) on a cash flow basis, if desired. The full range of detacher settings and alarm settings are easily changed from the Presto keypad by the operator without the need for a service man. Changes can also be made from a central location when using the Presto Master, Herd Tracker Plus or Herd Tracker RFID dairy management systems. A password can be used to prevent unwanted changes.

A selection of mounting brackets provide a simple way to mount the components in up-grade and new installations. Built to order, wire routing and lengths are customized to reduce the need to open control boxes and to strip, splice and cut wires on the dairy. This simplifies installation, reducing labor costs and the possibility of installation errors. Every Presto Detacher is tested at the factory so that it can start producing results immediately.

From the one hour/day to the 24/7 operation, as a stand-alone detacher or fully integrated with individual cow RFID, the Presto Detacher is the most cost effective approach to achieve consistency of attach and detach and to attain full automation of the parlor.
