About the Solution:
DairyPower is the No.1 European designer and manufacturer of Automatic Hydraulic Yard Scraper Systems.
This technology is lead by a heavy-duty robust scraper blade hot-dip galvanized with a low and smooth profile, designed to prevent animal injuries. The scraper blade is driven by a patented double spring-loaded tongue, which keeps the rail clean, preventing a build-up of manure and allowing the scraper to operate in extreme weather conditions. Their unfaltering commitment to on-going research and development has seen the hydraulic system successfully installed for cattle, sheep, hog and poultry houses. The system has also been installed in sewage treatment plants, abattoirs and other industrial projects.

Solution Strengths, Weaknesses and Critical Indicators
NOTE: There are multiple technologies that are used as part of integrated manure management systems and yet are not manure management types on their own. The impact of these technologies on their own would be minimal or very difficult to quantify.
General Support & Other:
- Can be an integral part of many manure management systems
- Most projects have at least some equipment that supports operations of the main technology
- This technology is not evaluated on its own, the NEAT Matrix for this technology is neutral unless utilized with other technologies.
DairyPower has recently been added to the Newtrient catalog. Newtrient will continue to work with DairyPower to further refine the cost and performance information on their solutions. Newtrient will update this entry as more information becomes available and as U.S. dairy installations come online.
