Better udder health
The milking machine liner is the only part of the milking equipment that is in direct contact with the animal. The quality and characteristics of the liner greatly influence milking performance and animal health. It is extremely important to use the best possible liner type and to make sure you do not milk with old, worn liners.
Original liners maximise performance. DeLaval original liners are made from some of the best rubber compound available. Their softness plus elasticity are adapted to the milking machine and cows’ teats – optimally stimulating the cow to achieve high milk production. Tests show DeLaval original liners can give up to 0.5 liters more milk per cow, per day, than non-original liners.
DeLaval offers a wide liner assortment to fit each cluster type and to meet your specific production demands. Your liner selection depends on several criteria. The first criterion is related to the hardware. The liners should fit your current equipment. When you know your claw, shell and cluster cleaner or jetter type - you will know what liner options to choose. You also need to look at your herd’s average udder and teat size.
The DeLaval range includes liners for short, long, thin and wide teats but as your herd’s udder and teat sizes will vary, the liner selection will have to be a compromise to ideally suit the average cow. To find the best liner option for your herd, contact your local DeLaval dealer.
