Welcome to Milkalyser


The fertility management crisis in dairying is only getting worse.

Now it’s time to apply some new technology.

Milkalyser is an advanced technology dairy cow milk sensor that that provides low-cost milk analysis. Deployed on-site in the milking parlour, Milkalyser uses an integrated system to automate the inline analysis of milk progesterone concentration, mapping the overall ovulation cycle of the cow.

Current technology is lacking and unreliable

  • Observation detects only 55% of oestrus
  • Collars can get up to 75% but with many false positives

However, milk analysis is much more accurate:

  • Milk analysis detects 97% of oestrus
  • Milk analysis detects anoestrus 
  • Milk analysis detects pregnancy

Introducing Milkalyser, an automated system which measures the fall of progesterone levels that occurs before ovulation in cows. Milkalyser technology can predict ovulation, allowing for optimal timing of artificial insemination.

A typical farm could benefit by a net value of £150 per cow because of this innovation. The inability of dairy cows to conceive can cause a severe decrease in milk production, resulting in healthy animals being culled, as their failure to conceive is being mistaken for infertility. Milkalyser enhances productivity and efficiency dramatically. Read more on the benefits of Milkalyser here.

We’re looking for farms in South West England to be early test sites for Milkalyser technology. Contact us if you would like to be involved.
