Cluster Design Farming Note

Having a parlour which is functioning correctly allows milking to be quick, complete and comfortable for both the cow and the milking staff. Poor milking characteristics and udder health can result from unsuitable clusters. Having a milking cluster with components matched to the milking system will better meet the needs of the staff and the cows.

This Farming Note covers:

  • The functions of liners and what types are available
  • Teat cup shells
  • Importance of the right cluster weight

Issued April 2012.
