Transforming the milking environment

Centrus Rotary platforms out perform all others.

The latest generation of Centrus can now be tailored specifically to your requirements. Its development brings together three decades of knowledge culminating in a modern, composite rotary platform that’s unique, structurally superior and extremely capable in any milking application.


Centrus can now be built in almost any size you want, by way of its single bail modular design. This too is a feature unique and specific only to Centrus composite rotary platforms.


The deck sections of the Centrus are formed in a multi-layer laminated process.  The result is a deck which is 75% lighter and far more durable than traditional concrete or steel alternatives.  With proper care, Centrus composite platforms will look like new for their entire life, never pitting or cracking with age or exposure to effluent and harsh chemicals.


Cow comfort is enhanced with the addition of specially formulated and replaceable rubber mats in every bail.  The mats are soft to stand on, they protect the cows’ hooves during milking and promote a quieter milking environment.


Waikato Milking Systems manage each stage of the production and commissioning of each Centrus composite rotary platform – from manufacture through to the first milking – to preserve the integrity of this superb product.  


The platforms arrive on site – anywhere in the world – accompanied by a specialist team who oversee the unloading, set-up and commissioning of every Centrus dairy platform.
