PACE Entrance System

EasyMilk Line

PACE Entrance System

The EasyMilk line is a great addition to any rotary parlour. It is used for separating an individual cows milk whether it is due to beastings or antibiotics. With quick attachment and easy cleaning it is a fast and a cost effective solution for milk separation.

The PACE Entrance System is positioned at the entrance of the rotary platform. The cows must pass through this to enter the rotary deck. Once the position of the rotary is ready for a new cow the Texas gates at the start of the PACE System open allowing a cow enter onto the rotary deck. If a cow is doing a second turn in the table the PACE Systems intelligence sees this cow and does not open the Texas gates, this prevents cows pushing in on other cows or two cows pushing into one bail unit.

Components Pearson EasyMilk line is comprised of a ring vacuum line around the external of the rotary platform. Near the operator there are a number of milk bucket assemblies incorporating a pulsator and milking cluster.

When one operator is applying the milking clusters on a rotary parlour, the PACE system and Rotary control panel are a huge help in controlling cow flow onto and off of the rotary platform. The PACE system manages the speed and rate of cows entering the parlour. The Rotary control panel manages all other operator functions.

Operation Once a cow enters the platform and their milk is to be separated for example for beastings. The bucket is attached to the hooks under the rotary table and a tube connected onto the ring vacuum line to supply vacuum. Once the cluster is attached the operator can start the rotary deck again and the bucket assembly will move with the rotary table.

Free Stall Option The free Stall option allows the PACE System minor control of the rotary deck. If a cow is slow to enter or a stall is free and a cow has not entered it, the PACE System can pause the deck movement and once a cow has entered that free stall it automatically turns on the deck again.
