Rural Dictionary: Parlor
Parlor (n.) : When on a dairy you might hear the farmer say that the cows are in the parlor. The parlor or milking parlor, refers to a room in or attached to the barn on a modern dairy farm that is maintained exclusively for the milking of cows. This is the room where the cows go to be milked, usually two to three times a day, just like a meal routine. Farmers will sanitize the equipment after every milking.
