With the SwingOver milking parlor from GEA’s DairyParlor line, you take care of two milking stalls opposite one another with only one milking control unit and milking cluster. The double function of the PosiSwing milking arm makes it possible. The basis of this double-sided milking system is the especially compact herringbone milking parlor EuroClass 800. The milking arm is positioned in the middle of the milking pit. When you swing it over to the side where you want to start attaching, the vacuum starts. Simultaneously, you instantly have the milking cluster at the ergonomic height you need. The milking control unit takes over milking management for you and sends the herd management system the relevant data on the cow and milking stall. In the meantime, you can switch over to the other side of the group and finalize milking procedures.
Especially with only one person milking in the parlor, the SwingOver milking system from GEA is an economically sound investment for small and mid-sized herds. Despite investing less per milking stall, you can still achieve high efficiency thanks to higher productivity and a milking system working continually at high capacity. In addition, you easily save about half the water for rinsing milking clusters as well as half the time for cleaning in the long term.
The ApolloMilkSystem makes all the difference for Ed Newton from Millers Court Farm. It leaves nothing to chance when taking care of the welfare of his dairy herd. It dips, teats and flushes the milking cluster automatically after every milking thereby achieving simultaneously the key aims of high quality milk, improved labor productivity, better milk yield and very good udder hygiene.Read more
