Higher milk output from low tech spec
A BASIC specification milking parlour developed for low to medium yielding cows has been introduced by Westfalia Surge.
Based on New Zealand-style parlours, the NZ Pacemilker can be specified in 50deg herringbone or in side by side format in sizes from 10/20 upwards.
The parlour is supplied with hot dip galvanised stalling/pipework, together with vacuum pump, milking apparatus and manually operated chop gates.
Modular in construction, the NZ Pacemilker can be retrofitted with additional equipment including ACR apparatus or vacuum operated chop gates.
Westfalia Surge claims fabricating the parlour before the hot dip galvanising process eliminates the need for any welding later on during installation.
This is intended to reduce installation time and make the parlour more durable and less vulnerable to corrosion.
Typical milking workrates are claimed at 150 to 200 cows/hr using a 20/40 parlour for milking a low to medium yielding herd.
Price of a 20/40 unit starts at £25,000 and the parlour is available immediately for the UK market. *
