Kohler, S. [2011]

Only when cows' udder health is good can milk be produced successfully. Because the mammary gland is susceptible to inflammation, planning and implementing careful monitoring of udder health is highly worthwhile. Moreover, since mastitis in dairy cows is a factor disease, it pays dividends not to limit monitoring to milking technology and milking work alone. In addition to the factors posture, ...

Diagnostic by consulting Experiences with milking-time tests

Manser, Th., Genossenschaft Zentralschweizer Milchproduzenten [2011]

With cell-count problems, several factors are usually involved. The goal of the consultation is to define and eliminate the main causes. Different approaches are take in pursuit of this goal. This progress report aims to highlight the diagnostic tools used in the spheres of milking technology, milking work and mastitis pathogens. Checking the milking equipment outside of milking times forms th ...

Milking hygiene in automatic milking systems must meet exceptionally stringent standards. The milk must be safe in terms of its bacteriological quality; primary contamination must be prevented by consistently good udder health, and secondary contamination minimised by hygienically sound udder cleaning and interim cleaning of the teat cups and udder-cleaning equipment. The effectiveness of the ...

Automatic milking systems (AMS's) are equipped with different sensors for monitoring milk quality. Among other things, these sensors record the electrical conductivity, quantity, colour and somatic cell content of the milk. In order to test currently used sensor combinations in terms of their reliability in detecting mastitis, twelve working farms in the German state of Schleswig-Holstein with ...

Determining milk-content characteristics can be helpful in monitoring the state of health of lactating dairy cows. Auxiliary variables such as cell count or fat/protein ratio provide important clues for the early detection of udder and metabolic diseases. Until now, milk composition (fat, protein, urea, lactose) and cell counts were usually recorded once a month within the framework of the pro ...

Effect of triangular teat-cup liners on milk ejection and teat condition

Haeussermann, A., Christian-Albrechts-Universitaet et al. [2011]

The type and intensity of massage effect on the teat during machine milking is influenced by the properties of the teat-cup liner, pulsation, and vacuum level. Only with the proper interplay of these three factors is the natural defence function of the teat supported and a physiologically optimal milk-flow rate achieved. The aim of the study was to compare a triangular teat-cup liner shaft wit ...

Individual-quarter milking technology is becoming ever-more popular with farmers making replacement investments in milking technology. The present study compares a Multilactor® individual-quarter milking system for milking parlours with an automatic milking system (AMS).[...] The aim of the present study was therefore to determine the average vacuum present at the teat-end for different milk f ...

Activity and resting behavour of dairy cows in barns with automatic milking systems (AMS's)

Helmreich, S., Landwirtschaftliches Zentrum fuer Rinderhaltung Gruenlandwirtschaft, Milchwirtschaft, Wild und Fischerei Baden-Wuerttemberg et al. [2011]

Where AMS's are used, cows have the freedom to determine their daily rhythm themselves. Various cow-movement systems governing access to specific areas of the barn limit this freedom, however. Consequently, a cow's individual time budget is an important indicator of well-being. Resting time that is cut short or low feeding times may indicate an absence of ease in the animals. This study measu ...

Milking-parlour technology and milking problems were analysed on the basis of farm-structure data and user evaluations furnished by a survey of Swiss dairy farmers. The number of modern milking parlours for loose-housing systems rose steadily in the past. Most common were 30° herringbone and tandem milking parlours. Depending on parlour type, the percentage of farms with milking problems range ...

Optimisation of milk yield in mother-bonded calf rearing - can the calf's odor help?

Barth, K., Bundesforschungsinstitut fuer laendliche Raeume et al. [2011]

Mother-bonded calf rearing, in which cows not ony suckle their calves for longer periods of time but are also milked mechanically, is increasingly being discussed as an animal-friendly rearing process. Previously, however, the inhibition of the milk-ejection reflex during machine milking was one of the impediments to a broader use of this form of rear-ing. We therefore tested whether placing b ...
