Description

Are you interested in seeing how the V300 caters to each individual farm around the Midwest, USA? Here is your opportunity to do so!

The DeLaval VMS™ V300 is a revolutionary robotic milking system that milks each cow according to their individual needs, freeing up time for you on the farm. With a 99% teatspray hit rate, up to 50% faster attachment time and a 10% higher cow capacity, the V300 is sure to help your herd reach their fullest potential.

Join us for an exclusive tour of multiple DeLaval VMS V300 farms while making the journey to World Dairy Expo in Madison, WI. Your local DeLaval dealer will finalize your registration and discuss any participation costs with you if applicable.


Two itineraries are available:

  • Driving tour departing from Ontario: A passport valid for the length of your stay is required. Hotel and travel arrangements will be made for you for the length of the tour. You are responsible for costs and accommodations to get to and from the departure points.
  • Driving tour departing from Michigan: You will be responsible for driving yourself and caravanning to the each of the farms. You will be responsible for booking your hotel rooms but meals will be covered during the farm tours. After the last tour is done, you are free to return home or you can follow the group to World Dairy Expo.
