  • Patent number: 5245946
    Abstract: A method and apparatus useful in the course of a milking operation in which the milk is intermittently conveyed in the form of separate milk slugs, to accurately determine the mass of the individual milk slugs and to thereby determine the actual milk flow rate. A measuring apparatus of this type is particularly suitable for use as an indicator operable to indicate a drop in the milk flow to below a predetermined value at the end of a milking cycle. An additional operation of measuring the travel speed of the individual milk slugs results in an extremely simple milk flow measuring device being obtained, which is capable of relatively accurately measuring the milk flow rate throughout the milking cycle.
