Functions of milking machines
- The milking machine applies intermittent vacuum to the teat end, this allows the teat end to open and then the milk flows out.
- The pulsation system is responsible for maintaining good blood circulation.
- It makes the dairy farming process easier.
- You need to check your machine daily to ensure maximal functionality.
Single milking machine: Daily checks
- Ensure that the air admission holes are clear: They are usually in the claw piece.
- Read the vacuum gauge: The vacuum gauge is critical-tap the face of the gauge to ensure the needle is not stuck.
- Listen to the pulsators: When the milking machine is working and milking, the pulsation should be regular; listen to the relays and if they are out of sync, get the machine tested.
- Frequently watch milk entering receiver jar: As milk enters the receiving jar, there should be a steady flow except when emptying the recorder jars. If there is turbulence, air leaks are likely.
- Check teats as cups come off: Check cows’ teats as you remove the clusters. If teats are discoloured, either red or blue, it can suggest problems such as high vacuum or over milking and this should be investigated.
- Check cow behaviour and response: Make sure you observe cows when they are milking. Unsettled cows can be an indicator of a milking machine problem.
