Performance since installation:

Milking 145 cows per hour with one man and increased milk yield.

“When we set out to build a new milking facility we were determined to make milking more comfortable for the cows and ourselves. Individual feeding has been a great success with increased milk yields averaging 500l per cow, with no increase in feed costs. Our desire and enthusiasm to milk cows has increased because we now have a milking facility that delivers comfort for us and the animals, gentle yet efficient milking, with flexibility to expand further.”
