Liner slippage

Seem to be getting more liner slippage since I updated the parlour with new pulsation and acrs. I thought it was more to do with liner bore. I'm on a medium bore liner,always have been but dont want to go to small incase I get 1 problem solved at the expense of another. Could a change in pulsation ( delaval pacer to gea) result in more liner slippage
 
Not suggesting this is your problem, but we get more slippage when liners need replacing or at half time when they need 'pulling'.

Some are but to be honest I am rarely in the parlour as haven’t milked a single cow since 1979 but am occasionally in the office so keep an eye on
Fair enough, only job on the farm that actually makes money.

I’ve told myself that I when I’m 50 I’d like to be milking cows, not because I have to, but because i want to.

Supposedly pulsation and vacuum are to be adjusted to suit the inflation spec. So if you have the same inflations and changed your pulsation and vacuum that could be your issue.

None of my rubberware is replaced according to recommendations. Good inflations will go at least 2.5x the recommended life.

Ive never been able to milk cows without having some device to hold the milk hose in plwhich sets milker unit angle. Whether a hook or place to wedge the hose.
 

Happy at it

Funny I was going to ask you the make of the liner z. Had a set of milk rite and took them off in no time, between slipping and tearing where they were attached to the cluster. Getting on better with Kingstons.

The Processors and Growers Research Organisation (PGRO) has issued new advice to help growers understand the importance of measuring pest populations before any decisions are made on insecticides. Charlotte Cunningham reports. Ahead of the trapping season, the PGRO has produced a new masterclass video to help growers understand how to trap and assess pest populations. The key advice is that using a range of preventative tools will be crucial for farmers looking to reduce cases of pea and bean weevil, pea moth, and silver Y moth this spring, while finding more sustainable ways of farming in line with new agricultural policy, according to the PGRO’s research and...
