Since 2012 Waikato Milking Systems has installed over 40 cow rotary parlours in China

Another New Zealand company has had success exporting dairy technology to China.

Waikato Milking Systems is mid-way through another major project installing four 80-bail Orbit Concrete Rotary parlours for New Hope Animal Husbandry, which has its head office in Chengdu, central China.

The four milking plants will be installed across three farms and collectively they can milk up to 48,000 cows a day.

Each plant has been designed to the same specifications and capable of operating up to 21 hours per day, if required, seven days a week.

Waikato Milking Systems China Manager David Morris says three plants had been installed in 2020, the first was commissioned in July 2020 and the second and third will be commissioned in March 2021.
