The milk passes through hoses into the tank, where it’s stored. This storage tank is installed next to the milking parlour in a dedicated spot that is clean and accessible for the dairy processing unit’s lorry. The tank is large, opaque and airtight. It cools the milk as soon as it leaves the animal’s udder, after which the milk can be stored for two to three days at a temperature of 4°C. It is made of stainless steel and is fitted with an automatic cleaning system. The tank is cleaned and disinfected each time it’s emptied.
