Retrofit - Kehoe Bros. Dairy - Inverness, CA
Retrofit - Roger Manthe Dairy - DeForest, WI
In 1996, milking 125 cows in the old stanchion barn and on a tight budget, Roger bought a single 10 Germania ProTime II HerringBone with refurbished Germania Model B Arm TakeOffs.

He also built a new free stall for 200 cows and converted the stanchion barn for the parlor, big enough for a dbl. 10 with the missing 10 stalls to be added later. Both cow platforms were finished at the time with curbing, gutter and the 3" lo-line.

All support systems - Vacuum pump, Receiver Group, CIP System and Air Compressor - were sized for 20 units.

TechForAg added the second side in February 2006, with Germania Model SB all-stainless Arm TakeOffs and a Crowd Gate.
