Milking once a day in small ruminants. State of the art

Publication source (Mundo Ganadero)

The latest article by Elena Galán de Castillo, researcher at the multidisciplinary centre BC3 – Basque Centre for Climate Change, published in Mundo Ganadero summarizes the results and consequences on the effects of moving from two milkings per day to one in small ruminants based on 203 different studies selected for review and of which 41 were selected for qualitative synthesis. Of these, seven examined the short-term effects of omitting one milking, five the medium- and long-term effects of omitting one or two milkings per week, and 31 the effects of establishing a daily milking pattern for twice milking, with a total of 69 tests, which were used for quantitative synthesis.
