Milking Parlour Crowd Gate Benefits
Crowd gates for cows should never be used to force them into the parlour. Like you, we want your cows to have a positive experience by eliminating distractions and keeping the cows moving forward at a controlled comfortable pace. Your dairy crowd gate is there only to encourage the cows so that they move into the milking parlour willingly.
Like our cow stanchions, our crowd gates are made from high-grade galvanized steel and designed to remove pinch points and distractions, minimize corners, and minimize your workload.
Here are just a few of the many benefits you can expect from our high lift crowd gates.
