Our Milking Routine

Our cows are normally milked twice a day, every day.

Very early in the morning, and again in the afternoon, we take our cows to the milking parlour and milk them. We use milking machines for hygiene and for speed.

We milk the cows at the same time every day to create a routine – cows like a routine.

The cows usually come into the parlour in the same order at every milking.

The amount of milk they give each session varies from cow to cow, depending on their age, how recently they have calved and how they are feeling. Because a heavy udder can get quite uncomfortable, cows enjoy milking time, so it works out well for everyone.

We use the same milking machines you’d find on non-organic farms  – they are the best and most efficient way to get the whole herd milked each day.

Hygiene is at the heart of our milking process, to ensure the milk is of the highest quality. We start by cleaning the cows’ teats before putting the milking clusters on to them. The milk then flows through a filter to a refrigerated storage tank, where it is kept cool, ready to be sent to the dairy. After each milking, all parts of the plant are thoroughly sterilised with hot water and a cleaning agent.

Prevention is better than cure and that means spending a bit more time, care and attention at every step of the farming process. To prevent infections such as mastitis, which can be transmitted after contact with the milking machine, we hand-clean the cows’ teats and make sure each machine is thoroughly cleaned after every round of milking.

After milking, the cows return to the meadow or the barn, depending on the weather.
