This may have been why she was "on the market". Nothing messes up a good milking routine like a slow milker or a cow that the teat cups aer always falling off.chippie":2atryhne said:Try massaging the udder instead of slapping it. Reach up high and massage with your thumbs.
She may stop hitting you with her tail.

I was looking at how the inflator cups were on the front and realized it was pinching the teats off so the milk couldn't come out. :bang: :bang: :bang:
So I adjusted the way I hang the can and changed the belt placement and she milked out fine this morning.
Yes you can kick me in the butt later. ;-)
Go easy on the Soymeal....it's 48% protein so doesn't take much. And really push the roughage. That's where you get your butterfat.I luv herfrds":ajt0f009 said:Vets coming out next week to do an ultrasound to see if she did catch. Haven't caught her in heat and she hasn't been a royal butt pain. So she might have caught.
Have taken her out a fresh grass bale of hay.
I have also changed up her feed too.
She is now getting bull developer, cob with mollasses, soy bean meal high fat and ground barley.
Noticed today the cream on top was thicker then it has been for quite awhile.
She is still out on pasture.
