Some do it for the whole season, others do it during dry periods or to take the pressure off cows during early lactation or before mating.
Milking your cows once every 24 hours instead of twice can:
- save time — you’ll have more time for other jobs on the farm
- save money on labour and feed costs
- increase the number of days in milk
- improve your herd’s condition
- get more cows in calf
- reduce the number of lame cows due to less walking each day.
