Increasing productivity and efficiency in the dairy industry means creating new ways to keep the animals comfortable together when they need to be milked. Animals that give milk for domestic consumption tend to be fairly docile herd animals. These are animals that will feel more comfortable once they see more of themselves in the same location performing the same activity. They believe that this is expected of them as a group and not as individuals. Though each animal may be milked individually, simply keeping them together makes the process much more comfortable for the animals. This, in turn, makes the job of the dairy producers much easier for the people who have to monitor the animal activity.
So when cows need to be milked, open air areas can’t be utilized. Instead, it is done in an enclosed space to protect the humans and animals from any natural contaminants like rain and insects. The cows are traditionally put into cowsheds when they get milked.
Modern dairy producers use milking parlors to get the maximum yield from their herd. These milking parlors have different set ups and shapes to accommodate the animals and the lay of the land. Most layouts tend to be customized for optimum efficicency. The simplest method is to set up the milking parlor in parallel lines where the straight lines give the most organized look for the milking parlor.
