Improved milk quality
Levno provides the time-critical insights needed to optimise milk quality, assist with farm management decisions, and diagnose plant and refrigeration issues.
Gain complete visibility of your milk, from the time it enters the vat, until it's picked up. Using the Levno App you can receive alerts and view insights, anywhere, anytime.
Levno farmers can receive alerts in the way that works best for them. Choose from push notifications, text alerts, email alerts, and phone calls (for Full Cream customers only).
Levno for Milk makes it easy to keep track of your milk
Know exactly how much milk you have in your vat at any time from anywhere. Understand individual milking volumes.
Track the temperature of your milk throughout every part of your system, ensuring everything is running smoothly right up to pick-up.
Make sure your milk agitator is constantly running as it should be, and get alerted if it ever stops so you can get it fixed immediately.
Receive insights on wash behaviour and temperature. Wash reports provide data on when a wash has run and the temperature.
Meet milk cooling regulations by ensuring you have accurate records of your milk temperatures.
When milk is in the vat, be alerted when the power goes out and when the power is restored.
Milking Start / Stop
Keep an eye on how the team is tracking with data and reports on exactly when each milking begins and ends.
Prevent costly mistakes and resolve issues quickly with alerts to your phone or device

How it works
The temperature sensors are located in 2 places, 1 on the inlet pipe and 1 in the vat pocket. These temperature sensors are constantly recording values of the milk entering and sitting inside the vat. It then sends these to the transceiver.
Set up alerts to be notified when your milk is not at the correct temp or when a vat wash has not been run prior to milking + more.
The magnetometer is installed on the agitator. The magnetic field of the agitator when it is turned on allows the sensor to pick up recordings. These recordings determine whether the agitator is on or off, which is then transmitted back to the transceiver.
Set up alerts to get notified when your agitator has stopped working so it doesn’t cost you.
The transceiver is installed close to the milking line so that all sensors can be wired back to it to transmit the data. The transceiver receives data from the milk sensors and then transmits it to your dashboard and sends you an alert via text or email.
Levno will alert you to any important issues straight away via text or email. You have the ability to select alerts and parameters that matter to you. Add alerts for other people on farm.
A range of reports are available to see performance changes over time.
What farmers are saying
"Levno's technology is the way forward for us. By using Levno, I don't need to be on the farms everyday, I don't need to be checking up on the guys everyday. We know instantly if there is a problem and we can fix it."
Bruce Collinson -Smith
It's sustainable to have a Levno system, because if something goes wrong we are onto it within 5 minutes. We react as soon as we get an alert from Levno and that allows us to save the milk.
We can have 13,000 litres of milk in the vat at anytime, Levno has really saved us a couple of times with the vat and chiller not being turned on. Levno alerted us to the mistake, allowing us to resolve it before the milk was spoiled.
“Recently at 1.30 am my refrigeration unit wasn’t working, so the milk temperature got high. An alert to my phone saved me half a vat of milk worth $3,000.”
“One of our staff members left the refrigeration unit off one weekend and Levno alerted me early enough so we could get that milk chilled and had no problems sending it to Fonterra.”
“Farmers have had various warnings about future regulations. Investing in new equipment in advance, and knowing it'll comply with the future standards, gives me one less thing to worry about. It's a total relief.”
