Hygiene in the milking parlour through proper cleaning

Daily cleaning of the milking parlour with water removes superficial dirt. Regular, intensive cleaning is
necessary to remove deposits such as lime, milk protein and fat as well as urine scale. This prevents
pathogenic germs from growing and slippery smear layers from forming at all.

Cleaning agents depending on the type of soiling

Coarse dirt such as dung-urine mixture can be removed well by mechanical cleaning with water, ideally with a
high-pressure cleaner. For organic soiling such as milk, fat, protein or dip, alkaline foam cleaners must be
used – these have a high degreasing power and good dirt-binding capacity. Mineral soiling such as lime, urine or rust can be removed with acidic foam cleaners, which usually also have a disinfecting effect.

Draw up a farm-specific cleaning concept

The cleaning routine should be adapted to the conditions on the farm, e.g. to the respective water hardness and the type of soiling. A clearly defined procedure with checklists and reports facilitates regular implemen-tation. It is important to stay on the ball, because hygiene costs time and money, but a lack of hygiene costs much more!
