BENEFITS OF USING A MILKING MACHINE


More Natural

  • Milking machines use vacuum to “suck” the milk from the cow, the same as a calf.

=


Faster Milking

  • Cows like consistency

  • Regular milking routine and consistent performance of milking equipment means cows milk much quicker and easier


Faster Milking

  • Cows from Australia, New Zealand, Europe and North America etc. are bred to be machine milked


Better milk “Let Down”

  • Oxytocin is released as cow enters the machine it is ready to be milked

  • The Milking Machine removes milk gently and quickly


Reduces Animal Stress

  • Consistent milking time routine reduces stress

  • Exercise for cow walking to machine


Less milking Labour

  • Less workers needed to milk cows


Less milking Labour

  • Workers not operating milking machine can spend more time cleaning and maintaining the cow stall area and environment


Prevents Mastitis

  • Hand milking can cause cross contamination of mastitis from dirty hands


Improved Milk Quality

  • Milk is not exposed to air from teat to milk collection vessel


Improved Milk Quality

  • A correctly cleaned and maintained machine has a bacteria free environment


Improved Milk Quality

  • Plastic buckets used for hand milking are a good environment for bacteria growth


Mobile Bucket Milking System


Line Bucket Milking System


Line Milking System


Ezi Milker System


Double - Up Milking System


Rotary Milking System


Milking Machine Parts

Liner

  • Must be changed every 2500 cow milkings or 6 months (whichever comes first)


Milking Machine Parts

Milk Tubes

  • Must be changed every year

  • If they split earlier than 1 year change immediately


Milking Machine Parts

Air Tubes

  • Must be changed every 2 years or if any split before then change immediately


Milking Machine Parts

Pulsator

  • Should be tested and serviced every year


Milking Machine Parts

Vacuum Pump

  • Should be tested and serviced every year (if required)


Milking Machine Parts

Regulator

  • Check Vacuum Gauge Daily and adjust if required


Milk Hygiene

  • Milking Equipment must be cleaned after every milking session.

  • Correct detergents must be used to remove all residues


Milk Hygiene

  • Acid Chemicals remove organic material (minerals)

  • Alkaline chemicals remove fats and protein


Milk Hygiene

  • Bad examples


Milk Hygiene

  • Rinse with 10 litres cold water per unit

  • Wash with 5 litres hot water + detergent per unit (85℃)

  • Final Rinse 5 litres hot water per unit (85℃)


The table below shows rates of growth of bacteria for good quality milk that has been stored for 24 hours at different temperatures

  • It can be seen from this table that bacteria numbers rise dramatically once milk temperatures exceeds 4°C.


  • The graph below shows the rate of growth of bacteria in time and temperature


Training & Support

  • Milking Machines will only perform well if staff are trained correctly

  • Khuyen Nong and Daviesway provide training and on-going support with every machine


Total Solutions

  • Khuyen Nong and Daviesway provide a total plan for the farm from development through to milking.
