Rotary Parlour Feeding

The rotary parlour feeder has been designed to deliver rations at high speed into the centre of mangers on rotary milking platforms.

Twin herringbone feeders fill a dump box and optical sensors detect the correct position for the ration to be 'dumped' into the centre of the manger.

A large hopper / bin is provided for concentrate storage.
