Milking Sheds

Rotary Milking Sheds

Rotary milking sheds are now universally regarded as the shed of choice worldwide for larger herds of 300 to 2,000 cows.

Rotary milking sheds can be as small as 20 bail units and as big as 80 bails units. Rotary milking is considered to be the most effective use of milker time and optimises the number of cows that can be milked by individual milkers. The Rotary shed can easily integrate with most identification systems and are able to more effectively integrate with new technology than herringbone dairy sheds.

With many years of experience designing and building rotary dairy sheds, our Chapman Dairy™ designed shed can offer you a customised solution to suit your individual circumstances.

Herringbone Milking Sheds

Historically the first choice of New Zealand farmers for many years, herringbone milking sheds are now predominantly the domain of smaller herds of up to 500 cows.

Herringbone milking sheds range in size from 10 a-side units, up to 50 a-side units. They have the advantage of being easily extended if herd size increases in the future, but larger herringbones do require a higher labour input than rotaries in order to effectively carry out the milking process.

Rural Building Solutions has a wide range of Chapman Dairy ™ designs that can be customised to suit your individual circumstances.
