The MEA is the only independent Trade Association to represent the interests of companies who manufacture, distribute and supply milking equipment for use in the UK. Our Association objectives are;
- To support the implementation of current standards in the supply, Installation, maintenance, of milking equipment and encourage its efficient use.
- To strive for best practice in respect of animal health and welfare and commit to both the education and improvements within the industry.
- To represent the common interests and views of the milking manufacturers in the media and in participative roles with other government, regulatory, technical, and other active bodies/groups within the dairy farming industry, both at home and in wider international forums when required
The MEA launched Parlour Safe, an accreditation course aimed at providing encouragement and recognition for both employers and technicians and other employees who voluntarily commit to continual professional development in pursuit of technical support excellence. The objective of the Parlour Safe Scheme is to provide a common means of benchmarking, monitoring and assessing the competence of technicians and others employed within the milking equipment sector.
