Westwaard's Crowd Control system features the heaviest gate in the industry. It's auto functions reduce milker involvement and expedite quick and comfortable parlor loading time. Not only is the holding pen reduced automatically when cows enter the milking facility, but it is also designed to naturally restrict cows from obstructing the smooth forward movement of the herd.
When deciding if a Crowd Gate is the right choice for your dairy, ask yourself these two questions:
1. Do I want to dramatically improve the flow of cows into the parlor?
2. Do I want to increase the efficiency of my milking operation? If you answered yes to these questions, then the answer should be clear.
If you still have doubts, here is a list of added benefits:
