Vertical lift front end allows quick reload
The Champion™ parallel parlour lifts vertically to release the cows. As soon as the cows pass under the fronts, the stalls may be lowered and reloading can begin immediately. Sequencing gates are mounted to the stalls. When the stalls go up, the sequence gates go up with them and the cows have a totally open platform for exiting. A very comfortable exit, great for very large cows and pregnant cows.
The large herd specialist
Because many of the dairies that require quick parlour installations are large and operate 24 hours a day the Champion™ is built to withstand 24 hour, seven day a week operation. Framework for the stall is made from galvanized structural steel and the butt pans with elevated gutters are made from durable, easy-to-clean stainless steel. Four and five cow sections are available to allow a wide range of parlour sizes.
Minimal installation time
If you are re-modelling an existing parlour, chances are you have very little time to make the conversion. This is where the Champion™ parallel parlour shines bright. Sequencing gates are neck rail mounted to eliminate the gate posts in the cow platform and reduce the installation time. Sections of the Champion™ have been fabricated and preassembled at the factory to save you valuable time during the installation.
