Glenda Pereira, assistant Extension professor and statewide dairy specialist with University of Maine Cooperative Extension, spoke to the Bangor Daily News about how to get new cows accustomed to milking. “There are a lot of hormones in play when they become a (milk-producing) cow,” she said. “Plus getting milked for the first time is an event they have not experienced before and it can all be stressful.”
