system should be designed to promote Good Cow Milking by
1) providing fast and complete milking,
2) minimizing stress to the udder and,
3) minimizing the opportunity for bacteria to spread.
Our technicians are trained to perform a series of evaluations on
site and to give individual recommendations for each milking
system, regardless of your brand. Ask your dealer about Good Cow
Milking and the different tests s/he can perform at your
Your optimal milking equipment settings are a delicate balance.
Pulsation rates and ratios, milking vacuum, and even liner design
are some of these variables that must work together to provide the
optimal milking. Just changing to a different liner design can
affect that balance and risk the health of your cows' teats. Our
technicians have the tools and the knowledge to evaluate these
variables and make the necessary adjustments, so the milking system
will continue to provide Good Cow Milking.
Audit and Milker Training
In milking, the human component is just as important as the
machine. That is why our Sales Consultants also work with the
milking operators to establish efficient milking routines that
promote Good Cow Milking. They bring expertise to your dairy as
well as tools and teaching materials for your personnel.
There are internationally agreed to parameters for
milking systems. To find out if your system still meets these
installation and performance parameters, call your GEA Farm
Technologies technician and s/he'll perform and ISO evaluation of
your milking system, whether your equipment is from GEA Farm
Technologies or any other brand.
