Dairy farms are as vital today as they were in the early 1900’s when pasteurization was developed and the modern milk farm was born. Safer milk and a longer lasting product increased the demand, increasing the size of these farms. Now more efficient than ever, the harsh conditions of those early farms have been replaced with technology that provides more sanitary conditions. Efficiency has increased with robotic milking, automatic feeding systems, electronic IDs and other new applications.
Some things that haven’t changed in many older facilities involve the structure itself. While tank room concrete floors are still prevalent, many dairy farms are migrating to JetRock Floor Systems. The team at JetRock has adapted its non-slip, eco-friendly and sanitary seamless flooring system specifically for dairy farm installations.
In partnership with Yarborough Surfaces, JetRock is helping to support flooring and technology investments at Armagh Creamery in Dublin Texas. Armagh, like 98% of dairy farms in the US is a family owned and run business. Five generations of the McDowell Family have been dairy farmers beginning in Ireland before relocating to the US. Three generations are currently running it, located fittingly enough in Dublin, Texas.
JetRock seamless flooring is safe, durable and can be installed overnight. Its accompanying cleaning solution is derived from organic materials, so it is non-toxic, non-reactive and biodegradable. It is ideal for use in dairy and creamery facilities just as it is ideal for the thousands of restaurants, hotels, hospitals and other facilities around the world that have had it installed.
