Washing machine in milk parlor

 Resize text         Printer-friendly version of this article Printer-friendly version of this article

Daley Farms of Lewiston, Minn., invested in a high-end, commercial washing machine and placed it in the milking parlor for the following reasons:

  • The 50-pound-capacity machine is in close proximity to the milkers, thus supplying them with a constant supply of single-service towels for wiping teats.
  • The spin cycle on this particular model extracts enough water that the towels come out only slightly damp.
  • Slightly damp towels aid in cleaning the teats — as long as the towels are used immediately. There is no need to invest in dryers.
  • Not having dryers saves energy cost. Some utilities will provide financial incentives to farms for having these kind of energy-saving measures in place.
