Most milking in the developed world is done using milking machines & Milking systems . During milking  process, Milking clusters  are attached to the cow’s or goat’s teats in order to extract the milk.

The milk is filtered and cooled before being added to a large bulk tank of milk for storage.

For sheep and goats there are 3  types of milking systems  : Rapid exit , Cascade  and Rotary

Rotary is the type of milking system  with higher-perfromance and is usually addressed to  large dairy farms  . It helps every stock- breeder to get rid of endless hours of milking and ensures a continuous flow of milking, without interruptions.

During its operation  , animals enter and exit the Rotary  milking system  continuously  &  milker is standing at the center of the platform ,  attaching milking clusters &  simultaneously  controling the entire process  through Rotary control panel .

Below you can check the performance table of the different types of milking systems available  :

a) When Automatic cluster remover System is integrated on a Rotary installation, only 1 milker is needed for milking process.

b) Rotary is the type of Milking parlor with highest yields & minimum required milkers ( 1-2) for its proper functioning no matter  what is the size of the parlour .

c) Rotary  parlors can milk twice the number of animals comparing to Rapid exit & Linear parlors with the same number of milking units

a) When Automatic cluster remover system is integrated on a Rapid exit installation, only half milker are needed for milking process (from the shown numbers)

a) When Automatic cluster remover system is integrated on a Linear installation, only half milker are needed for milking process  (from the shown numbers).

b) Rotary parlors can milk twice the number of animals comparing to Rapid exit & Linear parlors with the same number  of milking units.

c) The total milking time of the flock must not exceed 75 – 90 minutes for each milking.
