Impressive Parlor

Postby slick4591 » Fri Jul 18, 2014 12:40 pm

Just ran across this video and it's my first one to see on this scale.

My first stop of the morning has two eighty cow carousels side by side. They also have a flat barn for their hospital and fresh cows. When all three are running they milk a thousand head an hour without being in any particular hurry about it.

I was hoping to see them come off the carousel.
I saw a robotic milker set up once but in a small parabone parlor. That was really slick.

I guess I'm easily impressed because the last parlor I was in had eight stations with headlocks. Oh, and I was maybe 15 years old at the time.

dun, first time I saw one of those we walked down a stairway and came out in the middle of the thing....after about 2 minutes of standing there with it rotating around me I was drunk as a skunk...they are pretty neat. Watched cows milk that day for a couple of hours and never saw one take a dump while being milked.
