We take care for highest milk yields – and for best operator and animal comfort!

Modern dairy farms ask for tried and tested, practical and flexible milking parlour systems. Herringbone milking parlours have been proving their efficiency for decades now while going through constant development for improvement and optimisation.

Animal Positioning
Optimum animal positioning is important for easy access and good visibility of the udder during milking. Wide and animal-friendly cow standings and push-button pneumatic gates help to maximise cow throughput by encouraging fast entry and exit of the cows and reduce operator routine times.

The EuroClass 800/850 parlour, originally designed in the UK to suit the requirements of the British market, offers an extremely robust 50 degree stalling for optimum operator efficiency and maximum parlour performance. Compared with the more traditional 3'- or metre-centre design, the shorter length between cows helps to reduce the operator's travelling distances, and the cluster position for rear-leg milking is improved.

The Magnum 40 herringbone parlour has been designed for 24-hour operations requiring highest stability and reliability.
Magnum 40 is particularly comfortable for operator and animal, with emphasis on operator safety in combination with the highest possible throughput - independent of herd size.

Rapid Exit
For those wanting faster throughputs while maintaining a high level of contact and visibility of their cows, the EuroClass 800 RE and Global 45 offer a choice of rapid exit herringbone parlours: the breast rail is lifted up after milking so that all cows leave the parlour simultaneously. The 50-degree angle of the EuroClass 800 RE means that, in common with the EuroClass 800/850, clusters are applied between the rear legs, whilst with the Global 45, the longer distance between units allows space for the milking cluster to be applied from the front.

Modular System
The modular building block principle of all GEA Farm Technologies products make future system upgrades and expansions easy and economical.

In a class of its own for speed and durability!
The herringbone parlours EuroClass 800 and 850 are designed for fast throughput. The short distance between stalls reduces walking for cows and operators, whilst wider cow standings are obstruction-free for faster cow movement. The double offset semi-cranked rump ensures cows are optimally located for effective cluster position and allows the operator easy access to the udder.

The EuroClass 800 and 850 can be installed as doubled up (one unit per stall) or swingover (one unit per two stalls) parlours.

What is the difference between the EuroClass 800 and the EuroClass 850?
The EuroClass 800 is the true 50-degree herringbone parlour designed for high throughputs and for milking comfortably through the rear legs.

The EuroClass 850 is designed to directly replace existing Autotandem and some old designs of Herringbone parlour that have cow standings widths of 1800 mm or for installation in buildings that are too narrow for the EuroClass 800 stalls. In this parlour the cows are positioned at approximately 45 degrees with slightly different stalling dimensions. In all other aspects, the two versions are identical and share similar benefits.

EuroClass 800/850 offers

  • Semi-cranked rump rail for guaranteed cluster position
  • Special rump rail design provides high visibility of the udder, large working area for operator
  • Wide walkways for quick and easy group changeover
  • Easily adjustable breast rail to suit different cow sizes

Benefits of both systems at a glance

  • Good potential throughput
  • Secure but gentle positioning of cows for optimum cluster position
  • Short distances between stalls
  • Less operator fatigue during milking
  • Safe milking and easy cleaning of floors due to suspended parlour frames
  • Modular system for very practical and highly flexible system upgrades and expansions

For even greater speed!
The EuroClass 800 RE is simply a rapid exit version of the successful and highly popular EuroClass 800 50-degree herringbone parlour. The herringbone design of the EuroClass 800 RE means that the operator had greater visibility and access to the cow during milking than with the side-by-side Global 90i rapid exit. Along with the standard EuroClass 800 rump rails and entry gates, the EuroClass 800 features a cantilevered, compressed-air operated breast rail. Manufactured from 2" galvanised steel, the cranked upper rail ensures the cow moves correctly into the stall for optimum cluster position, whilst the straight lower rail adds further strength for maximum durability.

The EuroClass 800 RE offers:

  • Compressed-air operated, cantilevered double 2" breast rail
  • Semi-cranked rump rail for guaranteed cluster position
  • Special rump rail design provides high visibility of the udder, large working area for operator
  • Wide walkways for quick and easy group changeover

Benefits at a glance:

  • Highly cost effective rapid exit parlour for medium- to large-sized herds
  • High potential throughput
  • Secure but gentle positioning of cows for optimum cluster position
  • Short distances between stalls
  • Less operator fatigue during milking
  • Safe milking and easy cleaning of floors due to suspended parlour frames
  • Modular system for very practical and highly flexible system upgrades and expansions

Good solid design for milking to the front
The fast-exit herringbone parlour Global 45 suits larger family businesses and commercial operations with focus on higher throughputs.

The Global 45 is particularly friendly to both operator and animal. The operator has an excellent view of the cow due to the long spacing (1150mm) between units - milking clusters are applied from the front providing excellent milking characteristics. This can be further enhanced with PosiMax or ComfortArm with Metatron support arms. The cows are securely positioned in the stalls to give them a high level of comfort. the workplace is safe for the operator and the throughput is outstanding.

Benefits at a glance

  • Easy udder access and perfect visibility of the animal due to adjustable indexing breast rail
  • Double semi-cranked rump rail with sturdy angled dung shields fit the contours of the animal
  • Suspended stalls for more freedom, convenience and safety
  • Heavy duty stallwork for longevity, stability and safety for operator and animal
  • Easy bolt-together contruction minimises installation time

Comfort around the clock!
The Magnum 40 herringbone parlour has been designed for 24-hour operations requiring highest stability and reliability.
Magnum 40 is particularly comfortable for operator and animal, with emphasis on operator safety in combination with the highest possible throughput - independent of herd size.

Open Entry
The cows reach their milking places quickly, comfortably and without any stress. Once the last animal has reached its place, the entry gate closes flush with the last milking stall and the whole group is properly positioned. Subsequent animals are ready and waiting to enter the parlour.

Benefits of Group Indexing
The breast rail gently indexes the cow back towards the operator after the whole row has been filled. This enables the operator to easily compensate for different-sized cows in each row without affecting cow comfort and batch times.

Rapid Exit
Large pneumatic cylinders ensure smooth fast lifting and lowering of the breast rail during the exit cycle.

Manure Shields
The solid angled manure shields fit to the back of the cow nicely. The cows have all-important space and freedom of movement, thus promoting relaxed milking and optimum milk yield.
