Intro90 Swingover Milking Parlour

The ATL Intro90 Swingover parlour was designed for low cost, grass based systems. The parlour provides the user with a solution to milking dairy herds milking one side at a time.

The swingover parlour allows the user to switch from side to side once a cow has finished milking, the opposing side of cows can be milked, eliminating idle clusters.
