I know that the settings aren't entirely accurate but I did the best I could with what was given to me.
This is where the cows go to relax before being brought in to be milked. It is the "Milking Parlour."
The farmer will then physically check the cow for milk quality like milk let down and mastitis. She will also have to thoroughly clean the cow and stimulate the teat before proceeding to the next step.
The cow is now attached to the milking machine after being thoroughly cleaned. Somebody will attach the machine to the cow and then it will do all the work. As soon as the milk flow starts to slow down, the machine will stop. Now you have a milked cow. Ta Da!
A freestall barn is when the cow's comfort comes before everything else. The farmers sole job is to make sure that the cow is comfortable enough to produce high quality milk.
In order to keep a cow comfortable keep the temperature at around 25 and 65 degrees fahrenheit. Make sure that they have access to be able to cool down whenever they want to and install fans. If it is too cold then make that the barn can warm up. Cows need to constantly retain a core body temperature.
Pregnant cows have to be constantly monitored. Farmer's have to keep us healthy. Calves are given their mother's colostrum to be healthy, but they will also be given vaccines to boost their immune systems. After two years, my calf will be part of the milking herd and be raised in an off-site farm that specializes in calf raising.
