There are two basic reasons for upgrading milking parlours during their life time:
- Throughput increase
If you increase your herd size to increase profitability you may be able to avoid major investment by extending or upgrading your existing equipment. GEA Farm Technologies offer a number of products that may help you to increase the throughput of your milking parlour (see right).
- Cost reduction
With margins being so tight in dairying, you have to take advantage of every possible cost saving. This is where parlour upgrades come in – smaller investments during the life of a parlour, aimed at taking advantage of the latest improvements in design and technology to reduce on-going costs. Many recent developments such as vacuum on demand, heat recovery and run-off water systems will help reduce utility bills substantially and can start paying their way in a short time.
Jace Supplies specialise in fitting upgrade packages that can help you to keep on top of margins – talk to us to find out how we can help your farm.
