Milking Cluster Classic 300

The milking cluster is the point where the machinery attaches to the cow. On the one hand, the milking process should be as efficient as possible, but on the other, it shouldn't damage the cow's sensitive udder. The Classic 300 and 300 E milking clusters fulfil both of these requirements and provide a range of important benefits.

Milking Cluster Positioning

Milking Cluster Positioning

To ensure that the milking process is both fast and comfortable, the milking cluster must be positioned perfectly under the udder. Otherwise it can be very uncomfortable for the cow. Get it right every time by fitting your milking parlor with a professional milking cluster positioning system. These products help to ensure that the weight of the milking cluster is distributed evenly across the udder. This accelerates the milking process, giving you higher throughput and yields for your dairy, as well as happier cows. As an agricultural systems provider, we are proud to offer you a range of cleverly designed solutions for milking cluster positioning, specially developed for your milking parlor.
