AbstractFull Text

The teat is an important barrier against invasion of mastitis pathogens into the udder. Tissue changes affecting teat opening allow penetration of bacteria into the udder. Calf suckling is nature's way of cow milking which induces little teat swelling or teat end callosity. This should be our...

AbstractFull Text

The objective of the study was to measure the effect of wide-bore and narrow-bore milking principles on bovine teat condition and milking performance over a complete lactation. Teat-end hyperkeratosis (T.H), teat colour and teat textures are indicators of teat condition and were used to evaluate...

The objective of this study was to compare the effect of old (before exchange) and new (after exchange) rubber liners by means of the changes of teat surface temperature. Thermographic measurements were conducted in milking parlour 2×10 (rapid exit herringbone, vacuum 42.6 kPa) in 64 dairy cows....

AbstractFull Text

In 10 dairy cows the effect of postmilking disinfecting on teat temperature status was observed in tandem milking parlour by thermography. The teat temperatures were recorded in non-disinfected (NDT) and disinfected teats (DT). Thermograms were obtained before and after milking immediately and...
