GEA Farm Technologies

CowView: Cow-management controlling

Since 1926, GEA Farm Technologies has been known as a globally leading producer of technical innovation, integrated product solutions and effective animal hygiene. We enable dairy farmers to produce milk cost-efficiently according to high standards. Today, manure systems and barn equipment for livestock complete our profile as a total system provider for all sizes of businesses. We continue to strive for better milk quality and animal-friendly livestock breeding.

Our office in Skanderborg is specifically concentrating on cow management and detecting cow behaviour. The movement and position of the cows in the cowshed are observed using a technology similar to a GPS, named CowView, where data are registered, processed and received on a hand terminal or smartphone - helping the dairy farmer to locate and understand the behaviour of each cow.

With CowView, the dairy farmer can easily track any deviation from the daily behaviour and be aware if a cow has a low activity level and might be sick or if it has a high activity level and might for example be in heat.

Recycle water and CIP liquids. Recover heat and

product. Reduce energy consumption, waste,

emissions and costs - this is why sustainable process

solutions are the way to a smart, green and lean


Recycle, Recover, Reduce

Regardless of the solution GEA recommends, you can be sure we will help you reap the financial and environmental benefits as quickly as possible. GEA’s membrane filtration technology, for example, enables you to recycle cheese brine during sanitation. Or you can recycle CIP chemicals with clarification of CIP solutions. With our water “polishing” techniques, it’s possible to RECYCLE

the process water for cleaning purposes or even to return it to the process, creating a plant totally self-sufficient in water.

Milk evaporation condensates are a great source of drinking water. Instead of discharging this liquid build-up with the dairy plant’s waste water, our VARICOVER® product recovery system results in less waste and dramatically higher product yield. Better heat and water RECOVERY systems further optimize the economic efficiency of your production plant.

Cut down on energy, water and chemical/cleaning agent consumption. Minimize heat, pressure and product losses.

REDUCE cleaning and production downtimes. Limit waste and waste water loads. Decrease bottle weight. Lower operational, transportation and total ownership costs. Shrink your plant’s carbon footprint and even the physical layout of your plant. The opportunities are many. Let GEA’s experts assess your needs and come with a no-obligation proposal of where and how you can save.
