Is it painful for the dairy cow when being milked?
Milking a cow actually provides relief from the pressure of being full of milk.
The milking machine applies a very gentle pressure on each teat in an alternating pattern.
Although every dairy farm may have a different type of milking equipment, milking the cow provides relief and comfort for the cow. Dairy farmers make sure their cows in the milking herd are milked at least twice a day, the same time every day, everyday of the year.
