  • Description

    A REMARKABLE MILK COLLECTION VEHICLE DEMONSTRATED MARCH 4, IN NORTHERN DENMARK, PROMISES TO SAVE THE SMALL FARMER MUCH IN THE WAY OF MONEY, TIME AND LABOUR. INSTEAD OF THE LONG TREK TO THE DAIRY WITH A LORRY-LOAD OF MILK CHURNS, THE FARMER CAN NOW BE VISITED BY AN INGENIOUS DAIRY ON WHEELS THAT COLLECTS HIS DAILY MILK PRODUCTION WITHIN MINUTES.

    THE COLLECTOR CAR DRIVES ALONGSIDE THE FULL CHURNS, AND THE MILK IS DRAWN ELECTRICALLY THROUGH A PIPELINE INTO A LARGE TANK. ANOTHER TANK ON THE CAR IS ABLE TO RETURN TO THE FARMER MILK, COLLECTED THE PREVIOUS DAY, THAT HAS NOT BEEN SOLD. THIS CAN BE USED TO FEED THE COWS AND PIGS.

    A QUALITY TEST SAMPLE OF THE MILK IS GIVEN TO THE FARMER, AND OFF GOES THE COLLECTION CAR TO CALL ON OTHER SMALL FARMERS IN THE DISTRICT. THE FIRST TWENTY OF THESE CARS, MOSTLY BUILT IN WEST GERMANY, ARE ALREADY IN USE. SOON THESE CARS WILL BE MANUFACTURED IN DENMARK.
