The effect of dry versus wet stimulation of milking cows on the fat absorption by teat cup liners

The effect of dry versus wet stimulation of milking cows on the fat absorption by teat cup liners

New Zealand Journal of Dairy Science and Technology 11(2): 88-90

2 groups, each comprising one of a pair of identical twin cows, milked as separate herds in a 3-a-side herringbone milking parlour, were used to study the effect of dry vs. wet stimulation (using liquid soap and water) of dairy cows before milking on the fat absorption by teacup liners. Results from a 17-wk farm trial showed that fat absorbed by liners was significantly greater (0.775 g) in the dry-stimulated group than in the wet-stimulated group (0.499 g).
