There is a lot that should flow in everyday life at Åtorp dairy farm outside Vingåker. Both animals, machines and tools must be taken care of. To help have Jenny (far right) and Janne (center), Martin Allard who works as a machine operator on the farm, (far left in the picture.)
With a herd of 100 cows and a machine park of just over 20 tools and machines, there is a lot that needs to be taken care of and must work. When the machines stop, it quickly affects the entire business, both financially and in terms of quality. For Jenny and Janne, therefore, regular maintenance of tools and machines is of the utmost importance. But getting structure and control over when maintenance is to be done is not always so easy.
- Here in Team Åtorp, we are several drivers who drive the machines and take care of the maintenance, so it is not always so easy to follow up on what has been done and should be done, says Janne. Therefore, Farmers First feels like a natural step for us so that we can work with a simpler way of maintenance and service and reduce the risks of unnecessary downtime.
Martin Allard, machine operator at Åtorp nods in agreement.
- It is really a big advantage that it is so easy to use. I keep track of my maintenance directly on the phone and can add comments and notes to my colleagues smoothly and easily. It feels like a boost for the whole industry and for me who works with machine maintenance. It makes my everyday life so much easier because I can plan and structure my work in a smart way.
