Lockups – EXP Series

Seneca designs and builds every product for Cow Comfort and longevity, maintaining the highest quality and standards in the industry. When you have a product that is made to last for decades, you have to be sure you get it right the first time.

To that end, Seneca poured extensive Research and Development into the creation of a new lockup that would represent the ultimate in cow comfort and also suit the needs of our customers; long into the future. In order to bring the Dairy Industry the very best in animal retention, we studied breeding trends and evolving physical characteristics of US dairy cows and listened to our customers to hear what they were looking for in the perfect lockup.

The result was the SENECA GEN3 Series Lockup, a heavy duty system packed with quality features that will maximize cow comfort today and provide unrivaled longevity well into the future.
