Herringbone Parlours - Twisted Lactalign!

Here's a twisted version for a herringbone milking parlour. As explained in the video, the number one reason for Lactalign is to balance the weight of the milking cluster on the cow by supporting the pipes. In this particular version for herringbones parlours, if you position the cord in a certain way relative to the pipes, the cord will also pull it over so that when you come back to it, it is ready for you to reattach. It drops down so it is out of the way for when you put the cluster on and you come along, pick it back up again. Put the cord in, put the pipe in the one above the cord and then when the cord retracts, the cord will pull the pipes out and pull it over.

On all herringbone and rapid exit parlours, the bracket is made so that it will slide up and down. The reason for that is that the cows don't always stand dead in the centre so you have to be able to move it so that when the pipe is on is in the right position relative to the cow. The brackets are designed in such a way that it doesn't interfere with any of the existing equipment. It can go over the top of the milk metre and it won't interfere with the washing cups. Also, when the washing cops are folded down and the clusters are on, it will fold down in between them so it's not in the way.

Lactalign can be retrofitted into most modern dairy parlour designs. To discuss installing Lactalign in your parlour, get in touch using the link below.
