An improved mechanical milking system

Authors: W.G. Whittlestone, M.S. Beckley and H.W. Cannon

Abstract:

A mechanical milking system is described which employs a large diameter milk pipe beneath the cows. The line is of such volume that it replaces the releaser tank, and a milk pump is used to withdraw the milk from the pipe. Peak flow is absorbed by the pipe capacity. Air admission is eliminated from the claws and what air passes into the system is removed at the distal end of the milk pipe. The machine eliminates lipolysis caused by air admission and dropper agitation, produces a highly stable vacuum and is readily cleaned using a third line circulation system.
