The milking equipment and its relation to mastitis

Milking equipment and its relation to mastitis

Malfunctioning of the milking machinery can cause an increase of mastitis prevalence in the herd, either by transmission of germs from one animal to another, either by damaging the teats. 

Cleaning the milking machine

Hygiene and effective machine cleaning

Evaluating whether the milking machine can produce clean, healthy milk depends on two factors. First, all parts must be in good order, leaving no hidden places for bugs to grow. Secondly, the wash-up system needs to be able to clean all parts succesfully, which depends on a good functioning of all parts, as well as on the washing speed.

The vacuum line

From vacuum pump to interceptor

The pump's capacity determines the diameter needed for the vacuum pipe (the data needed can be found in the ISO standards), although there are certain other aspects that should be emphasised.
