WHAT CAN STOP YOU FROM BEING MILK READY?

The strange thing about milk readiness is that the two things that can prevent you from being Milk Ready are in fact milk and the water you use to clean your milking system.

What to look for?

How to easily recognise the main challenges on your farm

PROTEIN

In newly formed milk deposits, protein concentration can reach up to 20%. On equipment, it gives these recognisable rainbow-like colours.

FAT

In newly formed milk deposits, fat concentration can reach as high as 25%. Fat deposits can look and feel like a greasy layer.

MINERALS

While there are minerals present in milk, the ones present in the water used for cleaning can be a much greater problem. Mineral residues give a powder-like appearance, and can be white or orange/red depending on the type.

BIOFILM

Sudden peaks in bacteria count can be caused by biofilms. Biofilms usually form on a soil deposit that has already adhered to equipment surfaces. They can typically be found in harder to clean areas. These complex living communities of bacteria, fungi and other micro-organisms are hard to clean with regular cleaning routines.

We develop and produce detergents specifically formulated to work with the cleaning systems and processes used by modern milking systems.

This means they are fierce with contaminants, but gentle on your system and its components.
