THE value of applying the teat cup squeezing action more slowly, by "choking", has been well demonstrated for a number of years.
Leslie and Whittlestone (1938) suggested that brutal teat cups and snappy pulsators could be undesirable because of the trauma caused.
Choking was recommended by them to overcome this.
