Two years ago today, Lactalign was installed on all 72 points of the Metcalfe Farms rotary milking parlour at Washfold Farm.
The significant impact has been better than we could have expected or even hoped for. They have paid for themselves several times over in the reduction of mastitis but also reduce operator frustration and improved animal comfort with less liner slip, kick-offs and re-attachments. To date, they have done 2,933,700 milkings with only two parts requiring replacement.
