Part Two - Wet Tests

Tests that are performed during milking

  • Measuring teat end vacuum. Is your vacuum at the correct level for the liners you are using?
  • Liner Mouthpiece Vacuum, gives an excellent indication of proper prep, liner fit and over milking.
  • Teat scoring, how much damage teat end damage do you really have?
  • Graphing Receiver and Milk Line Vacuum during milking. How stable is your vacuum during unit attachment?
  • Evaluation and Timing of your Prep Routine. Are you milkers following a good routine?

We use the latest in high tech Vacuum Analysis Equipment with Bluetooth technology that attaches to your milk unit during milking. This enables us to monitor vacuum levels of complete milking's for several cows totally unobstructed. Data is uploaded after milking and compiled into detailed reports.

A complete report of all test results, recommendations, comments etc. is produced following our visit and copies are also sent to your Veterinarian if requested.

We highly recommend that you have both a scheduled maintenance and milking time analysis done annually each performed 6 months apart.
