All these companies are buying off the same companies and rebranding them as their own.
Like I said we have just started doing milkline and on their list of products we have just quoted the vario silent vacuum pump which is on the list of pumps on de Laval range
 
But I’m old school I like collars
Same here, put Sensehub collars on all the bulling heifers this year. Easy to take off or put on and easily transferred to new stock. We felt there was too high a risk of the ear tags being caught on wire or sheepwire and being pulled out.

The new ear tags have a longer battery life than the old tags, 5 v 3 years, and are cheaper as well so it's closer to 50:50 now than it was before, I think.

Edit: Cheaper than collars, same price as the old tags.

No, we would be milking off grass predominately and I don't know if they can be linked to FTY but I'd expect they can.

We're putting in a drafting system and they're able to use any of the different systems we looked at for drafting through the app so it should be possible.
