Milking routine 2: Milking and post-milking disinfection

MIlking routine
It is ideal to work with milking machines that are as effective as possible, and extract the maximum amount of milk in the shortest amount of time possible (high milk flows per minute). The teat cups should be placed on the teats when these are completely stimulated (to shorten the milking time), avoiding air leakage that may cause vacuum fluctuations and milk reflux. It is also important to correctly align the milking unit with the cow and ensure the tubes are not twisted. The milker should watch the process carefully and not perform any other tasks, such as feeding (which is very common).
