Cowman with 2 years milking experience on 3 different farms. First farm was a 275 herd milking in a 20/20 swingover.. Second farm was very similar with a similar number of 250 cows in a 26 a side swingover. My most recent farm I was employed on held 575 milking cows in a 25 a side swingover bearing in mind I I have worked in other types of parlours over this 2 year period doing relief milking.. I'd class myself as fairly knowledgeable when it comes to the parlour. I know the basics with drying off cows, drenching cows, trimming tails, fairly okay with detecting mastitis all though farms I have worked on have had a spray, wipe, strip and milk routine every two days. I can pick up on lame cows etc. There's still a lot more for me to learn when it comes to the medical side of the animals but I'm More than willing and interested to learn. Experienced with raring calves and treating calves for ammonia and salmonella etc.
