A study on work efficiency in the udder preparation of milking cows - effects of bedding on stall floor and udder cleanliness and udder preparation time


, : A study on work efficiency in the udder preparation of milking cows - effects of bedding on stall floor and udder cleanliness and udder preparation time. Journal of the Society of Agricultural Structures 21(1): 37-42

Three bedding treatments i.e. 4, 2 and 0 kg of sawdust per head applied daily were studied on 3 dairy cows of different body weights housed in stanchion stalls with a mixed dung channel with a slotted steel cover. Floor length of the stalls was adjusted to cow size. Half the amount of sawdust was applied after morning and evening cleaning. Area of manure spread on the stall floor, solid matter on udder and time required to wash the udder before milking were recorded twice daily.
