Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 1, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Tuesday, October 1, iHfc LETHBRIDGE HERALD operators invest long day Concluded from Page 22 directly into the milking parlor through two doors, one stationed on either side of a recessed work area. The recessed work area allows the dairyman to at- tach the milking units to the cows without bending over. Along both sides of the recessed area are two concrete pads for the cows to stand on. The pads are equipped with Herringbone stalls, a metal device which makes the cows stand with their heads pointing on an angle to the wall, exposing their udders to the work area. One side, containing eight stalls, is filled with cows. An automatic feeding system is used to pour grain into.special cups for the cows to eat while they are being milked. Tom said the cows eat from 12 to 15 pounds of grain daily between the two milkings. Washed When the first eight cows have been washed down with a hose, their udders cleaned with an acid udder wash and the milking units attached, another eight cows are led into the eight stalls on the other side of the recessed work area. And this process con- tinues, first one side and then the other, for about three hours morning and night until all the cows have been milked.

BILL GROENEN photos pipes directly into a stainless steel holding and cooling tank. Nobody touches the milk from the time it leaves the cow until it reaches the consumer. Boulton Brothers sell their milk to Silverwood Dairies Ltd. in Lethbridge. A truck from the dairy picks up the milk at the barn every two days. The storage tank in the barn is equipped to make sure the milk will keep lor more than two days. In addition to the 190 cows being milked, there are 60 cows which are kept as direct replacements to the herd. When some of the cows being milked finish their 10-month lactation period, a fresh cow is need- ed to fill the gap. Dairy cattle are bred so they have a calf about every- 12 months. As soon as their calf is born, they begin the lactation period. This is when they become available to be milked. By keeping 60 cows at" differing stages ol pregnancy, there will he more chance of keeping the actual number of cows be- ing milked at about 190.
