The order of milking

Preparation for milking
a. Clean the udder and teat of cow, then make it dry. You had better clean the teat with the water with biocide.
b. Before covering the milk cup, you should milk by hand 2-3 times. Then put the teat in the special cup to observe if the teat is normal.
c. Clean and make the udder and teat of cow dry. After confirming the teat is normal, you should cover the claw in 1 minute.

The method of covering milk cup

  • First hold the claw horizontally, and make the 4 pieces of milking lining liner fall naturally.
  • Then the milking lining liner can close the 4 mouths of claws with the gravitation of stainless-steel cup.
  • Hold the claw horizontally, put the claw under the udder of cow and open the switch of claw by the forefinger of the hand which should always hold the claw horizontally. (If the claw is declining, it will make the milking lining liner in the declining side air escape to influence the normal performance of milking machine.)
  • Hold the head of milk cup with the thumb, third finger and last finger of the other hand, and leave forefinger and middle finger to guide the teat put into the milking lining liner.
  • Make the stainless-steel cup upright, before doing it, you should disassemble the rubber pipe of bottom of milking lining liner to make sure the stainless-steel cup will not air escape when put it upright, then cover the milking lining liner on the teat quickly. (If the cow has one teat, which cannot milk, you should use the special rubber teat cap in the mouth of milk cup to avoid air escape.)

Milking process with Automatic Milking Machines

The time of milking by automatic milkers of each cow is different, and usually, it takes 3-5 minutes to milk. When you see the four teats are almost finished milking, hold the claw with one hand, and pull the claw ahead, so that it can make the milk left in the area of back udder clean. Pull the claw ahead again, if you find there is no milk left, you can take the cup off.

Method of taking the cup off

a. When the four teats are finished milking, you should take the cup off at once. When taking it off, you should pull the switch of claw down, and close the vacuum.
b. One hand to close the vacuum switch of claw, and the other hand to hold the four milk cups pull out declining.
Note: please don’t milk after finishing milking, or the udder of cow will have sickness.

You cannot pull down the claw upright, or the rest vacuum of claw will damage the teat. You should pull declining, so that the air of teat will escape to reduce the vacuum of claw, then hold down naturally.

The correct method of installation rubber milking liner.

Put the milking lining liner in stainless steel milk cup. Please pay attention to the arrows in the head of milking lining liner and the part of connecting the pipe, and they should be in same line. When pulling the milking lining liner in the stainless-steel cup, please don’t distort is, but pull it straightly. After installation, please examine the two arrows are in the same line.

The difference between milking by machine and milking by hand

Improve the sanitation of milk by milking machine: absorb the milk directly in disinfectant seal milk barrel to avoid pollution.
Milking by hand: to shoot the milk in the milk barrel in air, and the milk will be polluted by dust in the cow or air.

Improve the efficiency of milking and output

  • Milking by machine: It will take 3-4 minutes to milk by machine. It will take 10-15 minutes to milk by hand. It will save 2/3 time to milk by machine instead of milking by hand.
  • According to several years of using milking machine, it proves that milk by machine instead of hand can improve 5% output.

Reasons

  • 1 milking by machine can milk four teats in 1 time, and the rhythm of pulsator style and strength are unified, so that it can make the cow adjustable to it. And it is good for the growth of cows to improve the output.
  • When milking by hand, because the strength and rhythm of milker are not unified, and he only can milk two teats at one time, the cow will not feel satisfied, and it will influence the normal growth of the cow, then the output of milk will reduce.

Cleaning method of Automatic Milkers

After finishing the milking, you must start to clean. Just after finishing the milking, if you don’t clean the milking equipment at once, the bacilli will propagate quickly.
