Parlour Hygiene

The purpose of cleaning and where appropriate, disinfection, is to reduce bacterial contamination. Cleaning first removes milk residues left after milking and gives a significant reduction in micro-organism population. Disinfection using a product listed with a Pesticide Control Service (PCS) number is essential to finally reduce micro-organism populations to a safe level.

Milk residues consist of fats and proteins and may contain bacteria. This is an ideal environment for bacteria to multiply and grow. Another residue that originates from both milk and hard water is scale, such as Calcium Phosphate, commonly known as Milkstone, or Calcium Carbonate, commonly known as water scale. Scales may harbour and protect bacteria from disinfectants.

Cleaning should always be performed as soon as possible after each milking.
