Why doesn't Cornell care about the cows?

The question of "Why doesn't Cornell care about the cows?" was asked by a farmer using the CoPulsation™ Milking System after visiting several farms still milking with conventional milking systems and seeing the pain and damage inflicted on those animals by conventional milking machines. Dr. Ynte Schukken of Cornell University QMPS recently stated "Reducing pain events in cows will certainly need to include a reduction in clinical mastitis cases and an increase in pain-control medication." Cornell fails to address, or for that matter care about, the pain inflicted on the animals every milking by the milking machines. See for yourself the difference in animal behavior at and ask yourself why Cornell doesn't care

Cornell University continues to support the conventional milking machines and the failed practices of the NMC. Data from the USDA National Agricultural Services discloses the fact that the U.S. cull rate (slaughter) of dairy cows has doubled in the past 40 years and is now at nearly 50%. Milk quality data for U.S. dairies also shows that over 23% of dairy farms are not capable of routinely providing quality milk with SCC levels under 400,000 per ml. The simple fact is that millions of dairy cows needlessly die annually at an age of around 4 years old as a result of the conventional milking machines with the support of Cornell.

calfThe sad fact is that it will take this calf two years to reach maturity and produce milk and within another two years conventional milking machines will have destroyed her udder and she will likely be slaughtered for beef.

teat now dead tissueudder damageThe udders are the typical result of a couple of years of being milked. Note the right rear teat in the photo to the left is now dead tissue. The udder in the photo on the right is also deformed from a conventional system causing teat canal damage and mastitis. Click here for more details.

The substantial damage and pain inflicted by conventional milking machines causes mastitis (bacterial infections) and literally tears the soft tissue flesh of the teat canal lining. The result is a loss of the natural defense mechanisms of the teat canal to help keep bacteria out and an inability of the cow to milk properly. This damage causes uneven udders and eventually the complete loss of function of the associated quarter of the udder. The milk quality of the cow diminishes and the production drops. The end result is that a young animal that has produced milk for only a year or two is sent to be slaughtered. Dairy beef represents a substantial percentage of the U.S. beef supply.

Cows milked with the CoPulsation™ Milking System experience a unique and gentle massage action that allows the cow to milk in comfort. The milking action is most similar to the action of a calf sucking and does not cause the teat canal damage and udder destruction. The photos below are of a herd of cows that have been milked with this system for many years. The udders remain even, high and healthy.

Our Purpose:

To disclose to consumers the fact that Cornell University actively discredits a product their research and data has shown works. This product, CoPulsation™ Milking System, is a revolutionary new system that has been developed to prevent Staph aureus and other forms of mastitis. Published Cornell research has proven that a conventional milking system will create 16 new Staph aureus infections to just 1 for cows milked with the CoPulsation™ Milking System.
