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
G. D. & M. Dunglinson supply all types of parlour - 50° herringbone, rapid exit (90° type and 50° type), auto tandem, swing-over, auto rotor, parlours can be supplied with or without feeders.

Parlour Upgrades
G. D. & M. Dunglinson specialise in fitting upgrade packages that can help you keep on top of margins - talk to us to find out how we can help your farm. Call us on 01228 524918, or drop us an email.

There are 2 basic reasons for fitting parlour upgrades during the life of a system, throughput increase and replacement of worn equipment at the end of its life.

Throughput increase - if you increase your herd size to increase profitability, you may be able to avoid major investment, by upgrading your existing equipment. WestfaliaSurge have several packages that can help you increase the throughput of your parlour.

Replacement of worn equipment - with margins being so tight in dairying, you can't afford to have a parlour that doesn't perform properly. This is where parlour upgrades come in - smaller investments during the life of a parlour, aimed at taking advantage of the latest improvements in design and technology.

These packages can be fitted to your existing parlour with the minimum of disruption, and can soon be paying their way - as you benefit from increased yields and throughputs, and reduced utilities bills.

Here are just a few examples of the way that upgrades can keep you on top of costs and throughputs - talk to us to find out what else we can do. A free survey by G. D. & M. Dunglinson could identify improvements you hadn't thought of.

Electricity and water usage
Improvements in cooling technology offer double benefits – for example, by fitting an inline plate cooler before the bulk tank, you will take the load of the fridge unit (reducing electricity usage) and also generate useful hot water (for a more efficient wash-down or for feed make-up).

Compressed air
Running a larger compressor well within its capabilities will be more efficient than running a smaller compressor flat out.
