One of the biggest advantages was the ability to easily clean and sanitize the Surge. No long milk tubing to try and keep sanitary. "Only 4 pieces of rubber to wash" "Only 4 inches from the teat to the pail"
"Occasionally the teat cups come off the teats; the engine stops, or the cow jumps or for some reason they come off. On an ordinary machine they land on the floor and time must be taken to wash them before milking can proceed. On the Surge, they simply swing down against the pail, away from the floor, out of the dirt. On the usual type of machine if the cups fall to the floor with the pump running they suck up filth and spoil the milk in the pail - this may happen once a day or once a month. On the Surge it never happens at all because the Surge cup automatically shuts off the instant it drops from the teat." - from 1924 sales book on the Surge Milker. Just as valid for family cows today as it was then. If you milk in an environment that is sometimes dirty, the Surge Milker is an excellent choice for your family cow. If you have less than ideal conditions for washing your milking machine, then the Surge is a great solution for producing your farm fresh milk.
The Surge Bucket Milker was the number 1 selling milking machine in North America in the past century until pipeline milking took over the market for commercial dairy farms. For more details and history of the Surge Bucket Milker, go to www.surgemilker.com
