A modern effective milking parlour will increase your profits, allow better milk hygiene, improve udder health, and reduce labour costs. Stalls that are 15-20 years old no longer meet modern standards or demands for cow traffic. Improved cow positioning, operator safety and access to the udder are extremely important benefits of modern parlours. The 3 main Parlour types are:


DeLaval Herringbone Parlor

The herringbone milking system is one of the most labour effective batch milking parlours available today. It offers high throughput and efficient labour usage by promoting calm, harmonious cow traffic. Different levels of control are available.
