The quality of work, the time required and the labour productivity of various milking procedures in milking units

Tierzucht 42(5): 229-231

The quality of work, the time required and the labour productivity of various milking procedures in milking units

The planning, organization and monitoring of milking in GDR units organized on the basis of division of labour must be based on clearly defined work content and reproducible timing of individual operations. To provide guidelines for such planning, detailed work study of milking procedures was carried out over 5000 milkings at eight units employing 37 workers.
