Herringbone Systems

Herringbone systems are an excellent, efficient and economical milking solution for commercial herds.

Waikato Milking Systems offers a range of Herringbone systems that deliver exceptional performance, results and value. Choose from the world leading Supa4, the well proven and popular Loopline or the exceptionally fast milking Lowline. This range gives you options for every budget and every milking scenario including high volume cows.

A Herringbone system usually takes up a smaller building footprint than a rotary platform, which may be an important consideration when choosing or siting your milking system. Herringbones are also known as parallel parlours. They have a pit for the operator, giving easy access to the milking area. The cows stand on an elevated platform on either side of the pit, facing outwards. This configuration allows easy access for the operator to the cows’ udders, and room for all the technology ncluding pulsation, jetters, Swing Arms, cup removers and herd management technology.
