Robotic milking is an important technology option for dairying but this transition takes time, effort and investment. Making the transition to robotic milking systems is a significant decision and change in operations.
Land O’Lakes also knows that installation is just the beginning of ensuring a smooth-running operation. That’s why we’ve teamed up with DeLaval to provide Land O’Lakes, Inc. member-owners a special program with flexibility to save on the cost of the robots or the cost of first-year consumables and preventative maintenance kits required for on-going success of the operation.
Land O’Lakes and DeLaval are expanding and refreshing their previous partnership to support member-owners who are transitioning to robotic milking systems. The new offer builds on a pilot program DeLaval and Land O’Lakes launched in 2019 for California member-owners.
Land O’Lakes members who purchase a VMS V300 milking system and enter the four-year DeLaval InServiceTM All-Inclusive contract have two options: they can either elect to receive a $10,000 discount to the price of each robot or receive $10,000 for the first year of supplies and maintenance items.

The supplies and maintenance items can include camera cleaner, teat dip, teat cleaner, CIP chemicals, milk filters, and preventive maintenance kits.
Member-owners interested in learning more about this offer should contact their local DeLaval Dealer directly and also reach out to your Dairy Business Advisor or firstname.lastname@example.org.
