The Mercury

Herringbone Polours

Fullwood design and manufacture two different Herringbone parlours:

The 50° palour

The 50°

The 50° herringbone was designed specifically for rear leg milking. The cows stand nearer to the operator and the increased angle of the cow standing improves udder presentation allowing quick cluster attachment. Indexed breast rail locates each cow in the optimum milking position.

Other features and benefits include:

  • Wider walkways provide quick, cow-friendly entry and exit.
  • Shorter pit reduces walking distance and reduces operator work routine.
  • Twin rump rail for operator safety
  • Adjustable rear entry gate for each batch of cows
  • Individual mangers available for in-parlour feeding
  • Is fully integrated with Fullwood Crystal herd management software
The 32° milking palour

The 32°

In the 32° parlour the teat cups can be applied from the side or between the cow's rear legs.

Both the 50° and 32° herringbone parlours can be used with either the Streamline or Cleanline systems

Streamline milking palour

Streamline

Streamline is a high capacity milking system for new or existing parlours.  

Cleanline palour

Cleanline

The Cleanline system is an all-enclosed design in stainless steel that transforms the milking parlour. Specially constructed housing protects the essential milking equipment against soiling and contamination. This housing encases equipment such as milk meters, pulsators and pipework beneath the cow platform with similar stainless steel enclosures surrounding overhead milking stations above the kick rail.

The new design could potentially save on labour, as the flatter surfaces are easier and quicker to wash down. Specially constructed sliding doors in the cabinets beneath each milking station allow easy access to equipment for maintenance or taking milking samples.

Parallel Parlour

The main features of this milking system are:

  • A parallel rapid exit parlour designed for high throughputs
  • The unit provides individual indexing of the cows ensuring optimum udder presentation
  • Gravity controlled indexing gates hold the animals in position whilst being milked then lift up and out of the way to allow them to exit
  • These gates can be opened individually to release a cow for treatment or segregation
  • Sequence gates between the cows allow cow to cow contact putting nervous animals at ease.
  • The animals can clear the stalls in seconds overcoming slow transfer
  • Is fully integrated with Fullwood Crystal herd management software

Resulting in many benefits for the farmer:

  • High throughput will reduce overall milking time
  • Safe, clean conditions for hygienic milk production
  • Quiet stress-free environment

This parlour can also be fitted with the Cleanline system design.
