Prepping the Cows

DSCF1726

In this picture, Brian Manning is preparing a cow for milking.  Each cow’s udder is thoroughly cleaned before milking.  Aside from the obvious necessity of cleaning the cow’s udder, the cleaning action helps to invoke the cow’s “milk-letdown” response.  Once fully prepared, the milking unit is applied.
