2013, 14 (1) p. 134-142
The present study aimed at evaluation of the influence of origin, milking hour, subsequent lactation and phase after calving on the parameters of Montbéliarde cows milking. The analysis was performed on the basis of data collected from 5284 milkings and derived from computer system of herd management ALPRO provided by DeLaval company. It was determined that parameters of Montbéliarde cows milking were influenced by subsequent lactation and phase after calving and also cow origin. The average milk flow decreased significantly (from 2.2 to 1.4 kg·min-1) along with subsequent lactations and phases after calving. Higher indices of milking speed were observed for cows born in Poland as compared with those imported from France as in-calf heifers.
