MASTITIS

DAIRY CATTLE INDUSTRY INVESTERS, FARMERS, EXECUTIVES; PLEASE SHARE YOUR 10 MINUTES TO READ THIS BROCHURE CAREFULLY.

We unfortunately see the milking from cow, stock and transportation done very carelessly. Especially milking is seen like an ordinary farm job and who does milking has lack of information about this subject. Whereas, the future, economy and the health of your cows depends on milking hygiene. Who does milking must be trained and inspected, starting with washing hands, how to treat cows, what to carefully do in which phase and where to use which disinfectant.

What we see mostly is, these staff never be taught about these subjects. Otherwise, mastisis will be out of control in the herd, very expensive milking machines will broke and unfortunetly company will dissatisfy the owner.

Please especially pay attention to milkers training and inspection.

WHAT SHOULD WE DO IN WHICH STAGE OF MILKING?

1- Before milking: Milker; must wet his/her hands with water first, then fully foam with Dezinfex Hand Wash creamy hand soap and during 10 secs rub the nails and between fingers including top of hands. Then rinse with plenty of water and dry. Disinfect the boots and apron with Dezinfex Doxi 351.

Order of milking must be arranged: Regardless of housing system or herd size, milk first calf heifers, fresh cows next and then the main herd. Milk sick cows last then wash and sanitize the milking system.

Mastisis Check: Make sure the milking equipments are ready and clean. Especially prepare Masdisin Teat Foam teat cleaning foam, moist and dry towels that will use at milking.

Dip each teat with Masdisin Teat Foam to make sure teats are clean, moist and clean because they are very vulnarable to microbes.

After dipping into foam, dry the teats with dry towel or nepkin. Wet teats cause dislocation, slip or squeeze of milking clusters during milking process.

Foremilk Cows: Allows to control of milk and udder.

Must prepare a Milking protocol that all milkers can easily understand in farm.

2- During Milking: Check Milking System: Always check the vacuum level at the beginning of each milking.

There should not be any leaks. Prevent any stress during milking that will effect milking process.

Before you swap milking clusters from one cow to other, make sure you disinfect them while dipping them all into disinfected water (Dezinfex Doxi 351).

Check the udders through end of milking process to make sure they are emptied properly. Prevent over

milking. If the milking sysem is not automated, dont remove milking clusters while teats are under vacuuming.

3- After Milking (Very Important): With the finish of the milking, very critical process starts in terms of mastisis. Because, teat holes remain open about 30 mins after milking. In this time, bacteries find a suitable environment to get in the udder.

Teat Dipping: After milking, sealing the teats with Masdisin Herbafilm disinfector very effective to prevent from udder infections. Always feeding must be done after milking.

Aftermilking, Masdisin Herbafilm removes suitable environment for bacteries and purify microbes. Creates a Antideptic film on the teats and plug the teat hole for microbes. Masdisin Herbafilm lasts longer and soften the udder skin.

Clean and disinfect milking system and all of the milking equipments immediately after milking.
