Product description – Rotary Dairy Shed | Swing-Over Milking Parlour

What goes around comes around

Rotary dairies appeal to farmers because of high throughput – which, in the case of a 60-stall rotary, can be as high as 450 cows per hour. With a rotary, you can keep a constant flow of cows moving through the system.

The math is simple – the less time your cows are in the dairy shed, the more time they are feeding. More food equals more milk equals higher profits.

Employees who have worked in other types of dairy parlours, often say they don’t want to go anywhere else after having worked in a rotary dairy. Working with the cows is straightforward, the cows are more relaxed and therefore the job is easier.

A big advantage of a rotary is the fixed routine – for the cows and for the staff. A cow is stepping onto the milking platform and into a stall every 10 – 12 seconds, depending on how fast the milking platform is turning. This ensures maximum productivity from your staff, as they are ‘forced’ to work on a strict clock.

Rotary dairies are particularly well suited to large milking herds.

A rotary parlour is best suited to a milking herd of 250 cows minimum. Significant productivity gains are made on dairy farms with 500 or more milking cows.

Optimised dairy sheds, are what Rig-tech has built for dairy farmers for years.
