Generally, milkers become accustomed to using the Teatscrubber within 2 weeks. They will gain muscle memory from using the scrubber and quickly adapt. Milkers benefit from walking back and forth less, no heavy buckets of towels or trash to carry, and no aprons full of towels. Overall muscle activity is reduced when using Teatscrubber as compared to traditional prep.

“If parlor production requirements (e.g., quality and consistency) are maintained while simultaneously reducing cumulative muscle loading and worker fatigue, then TS use should be considered in milking parlor operations.”
