Franke: your right the cooler is 5000 gallon, or 19600 liters. Yours must be quite a big tank! how many cows do you milk and where if you dont mind me asking

Re: Milking Parlor
at the moment we milk 250 head. The tank we have now is oversized for our operation. The previous one was a 4000 and was getting too small. Also you are supposed to be able to hold an extra day in your tank. This meant a 6000 but the price between a 6000 and a 7000 was just $5000, so we went for the bigger one. It barely fits in heightwise. We farm in Clinton, Ontario. The tank will get an official callibration on Tuesday. The milk board here does that on a random basis.

Re: Milking Parlor
Looks very nice and clean.I´d love to try milking in a parlor this big.
How many people work in this parlor at a time?
I guess 2 are sufficient?

Re: Milking Parlor
Gerbert: yes you are right that was my dad, i havent seen the article yet.
Willem: Our farm is located just south of Winnipeg Manitoba
Patrick: We decided to go for swing over instead of a double up for the simple reason of milking speed. Our parlor has the same amount of units as a double 12 but we can milk at nearly twice the speed. Reason being is that the units are constantly milking. One side is hooked up while we prep the second side and as they are coming off they are directly hooked up on the second side.(Einascher) The parlor has two people milking and is capable of milking 180-210 cows per hour and over 2000 liters per hour.

Re: Milking Parlor
we milk about 1400-1500 liters per hour in our double 12 parallel. That is with mostly 1 person in the parlour and one moving cows and helping out when he's got time (not much left over)
