Collecting Yards

Well-designed collecting yards save time and reduce stress, whereas poor designs or improper cow handling will compromise cow flow and welfare. This will lead to poor milk let down, longer milking times and more dunging in the parlour. Is your collecting yard negatively affecting your milking routine?

This Farming Note covers:

  • The importance of space
  • Designing a collecting yard
  • Positive first experiences
  • Backing gates
  • Getting cows into the parlour

Issued May 2016.
