How often are cows milked?

You are here:

Cows are milked twice or three times a day. As part of the natural process after calving, the udder keeps filling up through the day. To prevent problems such as mastitis, the milk needs to be removed daily. A cow will usually produce milk continuously for 305 days, interrupted with a ‘dry’ period of 60 days when she is not producing milk.
