The most utilised parlour installation stallwork to date is the Herringbone parlour, so named because of the linear layout and angle of the stalls mimicking the shape of the backbone of the Herring. Greenoak produces the Herringbone parlour steel work in a variety of sizes and angles to suit the preference of the customer.
The standard feeding and non feeding types of Herringbone parlour are shown in the drawings below. Typical sizes range from a Double 8/8 through 20/20 which means an identical number of stalls on each side of the parlour. There will be one milking control for each stall in a Double parlour and the stall angle ranges from 30 to 90 degrees depending on the requirement.
