AIMS To determine the effectiveness of premilking teat-cleaning regimes in reducing the teat microbial load and effect on milk quality. METHODS AND RESULTS The effectiveness of several premilking teat-cleaning regimes in reducing teat microbial load was assessed using 40 cows on each of the four commercial UK dairy farms with herringbone parlours during two sampling periods. In the first experiment, all the treatments reduced teat total viable count (TVC), but there was no significant… CONTINUE READING
