    Watch it while milking and see what it does.

    If ecolis have ever gone in the tank I find it does seem to drive the bacto right up but not the cell count that much. Presumably the cow is just chucking out a lot of bacteria

    Mine is set at 46kpa,your running at about 41.5kpa,seems very low to me,fairy sure you want between 44 and 48kpa for a swing over and 40 and 44kpa for lowline.

    I think half the job is continuity,cows get used to a set level (within reason) turn it down a bit can't do any harm.

    Just to continue a great run.

    Yesterday had to shoot a ex93 cow that slipped.
    I lost 42acres of rented mowing ground weve had for 28 years.
    My helper of the last 5 years handed his notice in.
    The pump on the tanker blocked up with a cow clog.
    And a cow led on a cracking bull calf.

    How often do you think about sacking staff?

    Today, two went off muckspreading on off lying land ... only to run out of fuel halfway through the afternoon on both machines.
    Think there is a shared brain cell

    My problems seem like little inconveniences compared to some on here!

    It's a sad statement but it has to be a pretty good day where I don't think of it.
