Follow these tips to troubleshoot common issues in the dairy shed this season. You can also watch below Skellerup’s top tips for the dairy shed.
2,500 LINER CHANGE
The industry standard from DairyNZ is to change liners after 2,500 milkings. Liner shape, tension and inner surface condition deteriorate over time affecting their milking performance.
DISTORTED LINER MOUTHPIECES
After plant washing procedures ensure clusters are removed from the jetters. A measure to safeguard the condition of your liners and prevent cup slip.
Avoid rubberware degrading too quickly by following Skellerup recommendations and using approved chemicals. Wash rubberware with a strong, hot alkaline detergent twice weekly to remove milkfat deposits and rinse thoroughly. Regularly check the internal condition of milk tubing for rubber deterioration. For rotary sheds, don’t forget to include the centre of the platform in routine maintenance checks.
