Herringbone Installations

Compared to a rotary, a herringbone milking shed offers a lower cost milking shed option, and is often the preferred choice for herds up to 600 cows. The herringbone is the most common dairy type in New Zealand.

Over the years Leask Engineering have designed and manufactured many innovations for herringbone dairies, providing cow flow optimisation, milking comfort and efficient milking operations.
