The Milking Process

Dairy cows are the happiest when they are on a predictable schedule for feeding, milking and cleaning.

  • They are milked twice a day, sometimes three times a day, in a milking parlour
  • It usually takes 5–8 minutes for each cow to be milked
  • COOL FACT – Some cows enjoy music in the milking parlour while they are getting milked
