A good milking machine installation, as well as the operation and maintenance thereof, are essential to warrant good udder health of the cows and to ensure milk of impeccable quality. The maintenance of the milking installations and cooling tanks is performed by specially trained staff, i.e. milking machine and cooling tank technicians.
Inspection Milking Equipment (CONTROL)
Measurement tools used to inspect the milking machine installation or certain parts (e.g. air flow meters, vacuum gauges, pulsatortesters) are regularly tested to ensure reliable measurements.
Quality Assurance of Maintenance Milking Equipment (CONTROL)
Technicians receive high quality training and regular supplementary training, organised by the CONTROL organisation.
