Recent research into milking machine operation has proved that the belief of old-time hand-milkers that fast milking was good milking was soundly based.
In current practice the emphasis is on convenient shed and yard design and systematic routine in handling the cows. This permits a high throughput of cows and a high output of milk per labour unit.
The multi-timer designed and built by Mr. G. W. R. Scott and described in this article will prove most valuable for pinpointing where time is lost.
