Milking in a tie-stall barn
In a tie-stall barn, farmers bring the milking unit to the cow. The farmer will wash the teats and attach the milker to the udder. A gentle massaging action helps to release the milk from the udder. A series of stainless steel pipes filter the milk and sends it to the bulk tank where it is stored and kept cool until the milk truck arrives.
