How do I save time in the CIP process to move more cows through the parlor?

If your goal is to move more cows through the parlor without the expense of adding or updating costly equipment, then you should consider switching to a single-cycle CIP cleaner. This simple change saves minutes that really add up over the course of weeks and months without sacrificing milk quality.

A single-cycle cleaner combines the detergent and acid phases of the wash cycle, essentially eliminating a step and saving you precious time. Before you make the switch, however, make sure that the single-cycle CIP cleaner you choose meets the following criteria:

• Is it effective at removing iron deposits? If the product doesn’t work on iron, you may face problems in the future.

• Does it control teat sealant residue? This waxy buildup is a problem for many single-cycle detergents.

• Does it keep bacteria in check without shocking the system? If you routinely need to take this step, you won’t save nearly as much time or money.
