    Don’t be afraid to cut the legs off if you find one concreted in, they’ll probably be rotten anyways and it’s not a big job welding new bits of pipe in, it was a frequent event in our old parlour.

    Best way is cut them off and slot into a bigger galv tube.
  3. This! Fairly recently I scrapped a super little Miele 6-6 abreast, (it had been a demo parlour for them, Royal Show, Dairy Event etc,) auto washer, the lot , as no interest in it. Landlords specifically excluded our successor tenants from milking!:(:(:(

    Don't waste your time milking in an abreast it's too slow. Put a very cheap swing over parlour in. If it only takes two sides at first, milking will be very quick and give you time to earn money elsewhere. There's no point spending 3 hours a day milking 30 cows for next to no profit.

    Best of luck , Its great to see some one still starting into milk in a small way . Abreast parlours are great for small herds you can give individual attention to cows and are quite fast. Dont let me put you off Holstiens but having had that T shirt which is now gathering dust !!! British friesian holstien with a sprinkling of jersey produce higher solids are tougher last longer and make more money for you in my experience. Depends on your milk contract of course . Please keep us posted on your progress .

    But in an abreast the quickest milker sets the pace, In a HB it's the slowest!

    Ive always found heat detecting and inseminating in an abreast parlour far easier whilst im milking .

    do you need a box to stand on phillip when inseminating in a step-up abreast ? I will ask you again soon- only 18 more days before we will need your expertise, ( he really is good)
