Herringbone milking parlors, the most common type in use, have proven their efficiency for decades. These parlors ensure a stress-free environment for milkers and smooth cow traffic. Convenient animal positioning makes it easy to view the cow and access the udder.
In rapid exit herringbone parlors, the brisket bar is lifted after milking and all cows can leave the parlor simultaneously. This reduces load times considerably and increases throughput. This construction is specially planned for side milking and is suitable for both milking pit and milking platform designs.
Herringbone milking parlors offer:
- Galvanized/SS construction
- Distance between stalls – 100 cm
- Both fixed and rapid exits
- Galvanized rapid exit brisket bars
- Pneumatic system for gates and rapid exit
It is possible only with milking parlors as no one touches the milk and milk from the udder will go straight into the bulk milk cooling tank via filtration device making it very clean and hygienic.
If you have 100 cows then it is better to go with herringbone milking parlor where you will milk all the cows together, so if you 2X6 type parlor you will be milking all 12 cows per hour and you will milk 72-84 cows per hour in a 2X6 milking parlor.
