    Default Milk parlor remodel cost ?

    I currently have a swing 16 dairymaster parlor with holstein stalls.
    I milk jerseys and its been a struggle to efficiently milk them hassle free.
    I currently milk 280 an will be at 400 in 2 months. I plan to jump to 550 this spring.
    what do you think i would be looking at as far as cost (ballpark) per stall to put in a rapid exit double 12-16.
    i have 2 options boumatic or GEA.

    Default Milk parlor remodel cost ?

    If doing a new building and equipment 1 million dollars would not be hard to spend. Tech For Ag in Wisconsin has rebuilt parlors for sale that they bring all together and slide into existing parlor space. Doesn’t always save money if you need concrete also but might be something to check into.

    Its not unreasonable to spend over 10k per stall in a retro project.

    Or did you mean only stalls, not the miming equip? In that case 3-6k depending

    no i would most likely do a complete remodel. i would use my milk lines an receiver jar(only 4years old). looking hard into rapid exit, but not sure i have enough space for them to run out
