Abstract

In a joint project a standard cluster and a new innovative cluster were compared. The new cluster (AktivPuls, System Happel) is characterized by an innovative liner design. The vacuum shut off in the massage phase leads to a vacuum reduction at the teat under all milking conditions even with zero milk flow. In a 2 × 7 herringbone parlour the standard and the control group (137 animals in total) was investigated for 127 days. The parameters of the milk removal as well as the udder health were all over the time of the trial reviewed with the analysis technology in the milking parlour and the livestock management program. For further investigations two LactoCorder recordings were implemented.
