Herringbone Milking Parlours

Strong, durable design

Our herringbone parlours are a firm favourite with dairy farmers across the globe thanks to their impressive functionality and carefully considered – yet flexible – design.

Efficient milking

Cows can enter and exit the parlour quickly, ensuring efficient throughput and stress-free milking for you and for your herd.

Featured Case Study

The Cloy

Installing a new parlour into their farm’s traditional buildings has enabled Stuart and Andrew Gresty to halve their herd’s milking time and proves that it is possible to upgrade to modern milking facilities without the need to embark on a major building project.

Father and son dairy farmers, Stuart and Andrew Gresty farm 186 acres at The Cloy near Wrexham in northeast Wales. The entire acreage is put to permanent pasture with the 115 British Friesian cows managed on a very traditional, closed herd system: the herd strip-grazes during the summer and receives straight grass silage at the feed barrier during the winter. All cows are served naturally by the farm’s bull, with only a minimal amount of AI used.
