Analysis of the influence of variation factors on electrical conductivity of milk in Murciano-Granadina goats.
The aim of this study was to obtain further knowledge on electrical conductivity (EC) of milk as a tool for detecting mastitis in goats. The effect of farm, parity, stage of lactation, and healthExpand

Analysis of the electrical conductivity in milking fractions as a mean for detecting and characterizing mastitis in goats
Abstract The aim of the work was to study the effect of milking fraction on electrical conductivity of milk (EC) to improve its use in dairy goat mastitis detection using automatic EC measurementsExpand

Effect of intramammary infection on milk electrical conductivity in Murciano-Granadina goats.
Measurements of electrical conductivity (EC) of milk are used in mastitis detection in cows due to the low cost, possibility of automation, and rapid diagnosis, but the literature about ECExpand

Influence of vacuum level and overmilking on udder health and teat thickness changes in dairy ewes.
The effects of vacuum level and overmilking on udder health were studied in ewes. Vacuum levels of 36 and 42 kPa were assigned to two groups of 23 Manchega ewes in a crossover study design with twoExpand

Effect of milking pipeline height on machine milking efficiency and milk quality in sheep.
This experiment studied the effect of milking pipeline height (mid- vs. low-level milking system) on milking efficiency and milk composition. The experiment was of 8 wk duration: 2 wk preexperimentalExpand

Infrared thermography as a tool to determine teat tissue changes caused by machine milking in Murciano-Granadina goats
Given the scant information found in the review of the literature on the use of infrared thermography as a method to estimate the variation in teat tissue thickness caused by machine milking inExpand

Quantification of milk yield and composition changes as affected by subclinical mastitis during the current lactation in sheep.
The aim of this work was to quantify, on a half-udder basis, the changes in ewe milk yield and composition caused by unilateral subclinical mastitis within the current lactation. Fluctuations due toExpand

Influence of pulsation rate on udder health and teat thickness changes in dairy ewes.
In this work on machine milking of ewes, pulsation rates of 120 and 180 cycles per min were compared, both with a pulsation ratio of 50:50 and a vacuum level of 36 kPa, comparing intramammaryExpand

Effect of the settings of two automatic cluster removers (ACRs) on the milking efficiency of Manchega ewes
Abstract The implementation of automatic vacuum cutting devices (AVCDs, component of the ACRs, automatic cluster removers) represents one of the most recent advances in small ruminant milkingExpand

Short communication: effects of milk removal on teat tissue and recovery in Murciano-Granadina goats.
The aim of this work was to study how machine milking (MM) carried out in appropriate conditions affects teat wall thickness and canal length and their return after milking to premilking conditionsExpand
