New Milking Parlor Yields Big Benefits
Fox Cities Builders was tasked with building a state-of-the-art milking parlor—that would cut down on milking time and labor—along with a special needs hospital cattle barn for Doug Kohlwey in Adell.
Right on schedule, Fox Cities Builders completed a double twelve parlor, that is expandable to double sixteen to accommodate expected future growth, with a subway and a special needs barn. “Phil and Travis were always on schedule and ready to go. You could tell that a lot of thought went into our project and we are very happy with the outcome,” says Doug Kohlwey. “Milking that used to take four hours now takes less than two and a half hours, three times per day. Output has also increased from 85 lbs. to 92-93 lbs. per cow. We would definitely work with Fox Cities Builders again!”
