A well-executed milking procedure relies on good environment, equipment and udder care. If there are deficiencies in any of these main areas, the risk of the mastitis rate increasing is much higher. Learn more about how ABS Global can help you prevent mastitis.
Without a good milking procedure, the cow won’t have good let down, which will negatively affect milking efficiency and cow comfort. Also, a poor procedure with insufficient dip coverage and/or cleaning will leave behind harmful bacteria that could lead to increased mastitis cases.
It’s becoming more common for dairies to skip the stripping process due to perceived time constraints. This actually causes slower letdown and milk out, since stripping is also when you would check for signs of mastitis. Eliminating this key step will make it harder to detect issues early and will end up costing more money and time in the long run.
In this case, prevention is better than a cure. By maintaining good environment, equipment, and udder care, the mastitis rate will decline, resulting in a more efficient and cost-effective operation.
