Eli Innovation is an Australian owned and operated business, manufacturing an integrated suite of milk harvesting equipment and herd management systems.
We are the only domestic manufacturer of Automatic Cup Removers, Milk Meters and other milking equipment, which we engineer on the ground in Gippsland, Victoria in collaboration with local farmers. Eli was recognised for its work in 2014 Gippsland Business Awards, taking out the category of Manufacturing and Industrial.
Our herd management options include ID systems, automated feeding and drafting and advanced cow behaviour monitoring. We partner with Easy Dairy, Farm Automation, Jantec and MISTRO to integrate herd management and milk metering into a complete system.
All of our products are designed to improve the efficiency of the milking process and the quality of the end product, helping you achieve maximum profitability for your dairy farm.
A breakthrough product with high demand, the rights to commercialisation were soon awarded and the newly formed company Eli Innovation began manufacturing the product. Installations were conducted by Cutting Edge Electrical, a leading industrial electrical contracting business owned by Mr Greg Cole of Warragul.
Initially hampered by some prototype teething problems, Greg saw the potential for the product to revolutionise the dairy industry with a few small changes and a full-time engineer at the helm for ongoing development. In 2004, Greg purchased Eli Innovation and together with engineer Nils Netzer, perfected and relaunched the product and began developing a range of complementary systems.
Since then, over 10,000 units have been installed across Australia, New Zealand, Indonesia and the Middle East and Eli Innovation have become known for its well-considered and intuitive systems. Staying in touch with the needs of dairy farmers by providing on-the-ground technical support in Gippsland, Nils and Greg continue to develop some of the most innovative products in the dairy industry today.
Eli Innovation, Cutting Edge Electrical and Lely Center Gippsland share premises at 12 Lindy Court, Warragul, where both owner and engineer can be contacted for any inquiries.
