DeLaval is a market leader and trusted partner for thousands of farmers around the globe – providing integrated milking solutions that are designed to improve dairy production, as well as animal welfare and their overall quality of life.
At DeLaval, our vision to make sustainable food production possible is at the core of everything we do. We pride ourselves on our ability to provide dairy farmers around the world with innovative solutions to contribute to a successful dairy farming business.
We are continuing our work on sustainability through our three pillars – Environment, Food Safety & Animal Welfare and Social & Economic. We do this both within our company and how we benefit our customers.
As a company built on innovation, we constantly work to find ways of helping our customers, dairy farmers, do more with less by providing world-leading milking equipment and solutions. DeLaval offers highly efficient system solutions for milking as well as farm and herd management, animal traffic control, feeding, cooling and manure handling.
DeLaval customers can also choose from a wide range of services and consumables, including liners and tubes, farm supplies and original parts to ensure milk quality and animal health. By providing better conditions for animals, farmers can improve animal health and longevity while at the same time maintain or improve farm profitability. A healthy animal provides more milk, at a better quality and for longer.
DeLaval’s customers range from family farms to enterprise farms with thousands of cows. Regardless of size, we’re there to help every step of the way.
Every time we help a farmer find a way to produce more milk from the same herd, we make food production more sustainable. This might involve introducing a new working method on the farm, a new parlour, improved hygiene, more data to make better decisions, and the promotion of healthier cows to increase their milking lifetime.
