The herring-bone milking parlour stall is a commonly used design. The milker is in close contact with the cow and has easy access to the animal’s udder. The milker has a good view of the cows. When we started producing the fish-bone milking parlour stall, we used an angle of 30° to ensure good access to the udder. Different models are available for good set-ups personalised to specific needs.
Increasing the angle allows you to position more cows. However, increasing the angle also changes accessibility to the udder. In the case of a 50 – 60° milking parlour stall, the cow has to be milked from between the hind legs. This type of milking parlour stall is commonly used when upgrading existing milking parlours. This approach makes it possible to milk more cows simultaneously without having to invest substantial amounts.
