UW Milk Quality and the UW Milking Research and Instruction Laboratory bring you a new YouTube video series on evaluating milking performance. Throughout the series, you will learn how to perform various milking time tests to assess the goal of milking cows quickly, completely and gently.
UW-Extension Milking Systems Specialist Doug Reinemann and John Penry continue UW Milk Quality’s Evaluating Milking Performance video series with the second video Teat End Health. In this episode, they discuss three different aspects of teat end condition: hyperkeratosis, teat end congestion and teat canal keratin dynamics; and how to evaluate levels in the herd. The first video in the series is Evaluating Milking Performance: Measuring Claw Vacuum.
