Before you commit to anything, we carry out a full site inspection. We'll discuss fully your requirements, and go through the options, drawing on our wide experience of what works best in a particular situation. We'll be the people you talk to throughout the whole job, and we'll work with the WestfaliaSurge team as necessary.
G. D. & M. Dunglinson have built up a large number of plans and layouts over the years - and we also have the back-up of the design library at WestfaliaSurge head office. So between us, we're more than likely to have an off-the-shelf plan that is right for your farm, too. But if we haven't, we'll work with you to arrive at a design that you're happy with.
You'll have the chance to visit similar WestfaliaSurge installations, so that you can see for yourself what the parlour will look like, and talk to a farmer who has run the kit for real.
Once your selected options have been costed and you are happy with the route you want to go, we'll prepare an installation plan so that you can plan relief milking well in advance.
Deciding on a parlour layout
As herd sizes increase to maintain viability, 2 factors become critical, space and throughput.
WestfaliaSurge designs lead the way in optimising space utilisation and cow turnaround. The stall layout options mean that whatever your farm is like, we have a solution that will give you optimum efficiency.
In addition, your customers expect increasingly high hygiene standards - meaning effective separation of 'clean' and 'dirty' areas. WestfaliaSurge designs allow you to do this simply and effectively.
Choice of parlour is critical - to help you reach the right decision, G. D. & M. Dunglinson will guide you through the selection process and make sure you get what you need.
Types of parlour

rapid exit (90° type and 50° type),
