Side-Opening Parlors
a.k.a. Auto-Tandems

Very popular from the forties thru the sixties, they have been replaced with HerringBones, Parallels and Rotaries as herd sizes increased the world over.

However, there are a number of Dairymen with very small herds, who still prefer milking in Side-Openers. Biggest advantage:
  •  you can see the entire cow and observe her condition and .
  • One slow cow doesn't hold up progress for everybody else.

We built a dbl. 2 in 2010 for Grey Barn Farms, right smack in the center of Martha's Vineyard. Yes, THE Martha's Vineyard!

Young couple, Eric and Molly, following their dreams - "How about we build a little farm with a few cows (15 Dutch Belted) a couple  hundred chickens, maybe a dozen pigs and have a good time? 

Besides - Heck of a way to bring up a couple of boys if you think about it! Theirs are coming up on 10 & 11 years old.

Having a great old time, too. Molly started writing a hilarious blog and you owe to yourself to look at it - GreyBarn Blog.
