About Kristal D&D Since 1978
Kristal D&D was set up in 1978 by David Garrett, St John Jones and Edward Daniel, who were already experienced dairy and refrigeration engineers. They were keen to develop their skills into a specialised business offering milking and milk cooling solutions to dairy farmers and milk processors around their base in Bromyard, Herefordshire.
The milking machine and dairy supplies business has now expanded to include farms throughout Herefordshire, Worcestershire, Gloucestershire, Warwickshire, Monmouthshire and South Shropshire, whilst we offer milk cooling solutions throughout the United Kingdom.
David, Edward and Stjohn have now retired from the business as Directors and Kristal is now operating under new ownership with Jim Gillespie as Managing Director and Duane Sanger as Operations Director overseeing the day to day running. Stjohn will continue to work within Kristal on a daily basis whilst David and Edward will be more on an adhoc as needed basis.
Duane and Jim look forward to working with exiting customers and new customers.Read More
Robotic Milking Gea INTERESTED?
robotic milking with premium milk quality
Cows welcome the standardized, calm milking routine that takes place on every teat at every milking with GEA’s In-Liner Everything™ process. Teat stimulation, cleaning (or pre-dipping in applicable countries), drying, fore-stripping, milk harvest, and post-dipping all seamlessly occur inside the liner – in one single attachment.
Additionally, milk flow from the beginning to the end of milk harvest - via each individual quarter - continuously passes through the DairyMilk M6850 cell count sensor for analysis and early detection of mastitis. This revolutionary device is the first of its kind, using patented EPT technology, for real-time data that requires no chemical reagents.Read More
