Anyone have any idea of the price? I've been looking into mobile milking options for a microdairy, since I'd likely be operating on leased land in a flood plain -- meaning I'd want to own the parlor but couldn't attach it to the land, and that I'd need to move it seasonally during floods. However, this company's smaller model is for 50-100 cows, and I'm looking at 3-6.

I recently toured this milking parlor built in a cargo container -- not as convenient in that you'd still need to bring the cows to the parlor, but it's reasonable to move it seasonally.

this was about all i could find about it.. but i think you could do this if you sold it as PET Milk ... the problem is you could never get this mobile system past the rules

Hope this link shows up okay - this guy apparently got his portable parlor through regulatory as he's producing grade A milk:
