Herringbone Milking Systems

The Herringbone Milking System is one of the most labor effective batch milking parlors available today. It offers high throughput and efficient labor usage by promoting calm, harmonious cow traffic. Milkers can work without stress and spend minimal time assisting the cows in this fully integrated parlor. The system actually supports shorter milking sessions. This means cows can spend more time eating, drinking and resting to achieve higher milk production. View the brochure
