External rotary milking parlor with the greatest comfort for milker and cow

The workplace at the rotary milking parlor is perfectly organized. Every step is in sync: open view and free access to the udder, attaching arm as well as milking cluster ergonomically positioned. In just seconds the cows move to the free milking stall. With smooth surfaces and round forms, the especially low-profile cabinets are made with a cow’s anatomy in mind. For high milking comfort, thanks to a positioning arm free of leverage force, the milking cluster can be positioned individually for each udder. Round after round the cows stay relaxed. Secure optimal conditions with the DairyRotor T8900 for maximum throughput performance.

Process management at top speed

With the T8900, everything comes together in a high-speed network: The innovative carousel system control GEA DairyMilk M6330 allows you to visualize and control processes in real time. Milking stall occupancy, animal data and current milking results are available for the milker at a glance on the touchscreen. ID systems recognize the cow when it walks onto the platform. In the background, milking management is taken over by milking control units and the milk-flow-controlled automatic detachment system.

The slightly sloped deck guides water and dirt away from the milker towards the groove in the middle. A generously sized splash shield protects the milking technology and the interior from sprayed liquids. After automatic cluster removal, automated disinfection prepares the milking unit for the next gentle milking procedure. You can rely on clean hygiene.
