When the nipple of the cow is washed, the operation of stopping the motor 130 after forward rotation and then stopping the motor 130 after reversing the rotation of the motor 130 is repeated at least once. For example, the motor 130 is allowed to rotate for 0.6 seconds, then stop for 0.2 seconds, and then rotate the motor 130 for 0.6 seconds and then stop for 0.2 seconds. This operation can be repeated four times and clean for 6.4 seconds. When the motor 130 rotates normally, the motor 130, the wash water pump 224, and the waste water pump 254 can operate. For example, the nipple of the cow is uniformly cleaned by the brush portion 120 and the washing water supplied from the washing water pump 224 by the motor 130, and the washing water used for washing , Wastewater) is drained to the sewage tank 252 by the sewage pump 254. At this time, a vacuum generator may be used instead of the waste water pump 254 to drain the waste water by vacuum. Only the washing water pump 224 and the waste water pump 254 can operate when the motor stops after the normal rotation. For example, the sewage pump 254 may be operated to drain the wash water and the sewage supplied from the wash water pump 224. Next, even when the motor 130 rotates in the reverse direction, the devices operate according to the same principle as when the motor 130 rotates in the forward direction, so that detailed description thereof will be omitted. Thereafter, when the nipple of the cow is dried, only the air valve 244 and the sewage pump 254 operate for a certain period of time. For example, an air valve 244 for supplying air and a sewage pump 254 for draining remaining washing water in the cleaning means 100 may operate for 2 seconds to dry the nipple of the cow.

On the other hand, when the nipple of the cow is washed and dried, the sewage pump 254 always operates because the sewage in the washing means 100 can be discharged at all times, thereby minimizing the time during which the washing means 100 is exposed to the contamination .

In addition, the area of contact with the teat of the cow can be disinfected to prevent the mastitis from developing. For example, when disinfecting the brush portion 120 of the cleaning means 100 in contact with the nipple of the cow, the brush portion cleaning on / off switch of the cleaning means 100 is turned ON to start the cleaning. At this time, the motor 130 stops rotating after forward rotation, and the motor 130 repeats the reverse rotation and then stops the motor 130 at least once. For example, the motor 130 may be disinfected for 1.6 seconds by repeating the operation of normal rotation for 0.6 seconds and then stopping for 0.2 seconds, and then rotating the motor 130 for the reverse rotation for 0.6 seconds and then stopping for 0.2 seconds. On the other hand, when the motor 130 rotates normally, the motor 130, the washing water pump 224, the cleaning agent pump 234, and the waste water pump 254 can operate. For example, brushing by the brush part 120 rotating normally by the motor 130, washing water supplied from the washing water pump 224 and cleaning water from the cleaning agent pump 234 through the cleaning agent hose 236, The brush part 120 is uniformly disinfected and the washing water to which the detergent used for the disinfection is added is drained to the sewage sump 252 by the sewage pump 254. The brush part 120, the washing water pump 224, the cleaning agent pump 234 and the waste water pump 254 can be operated when the motor 130 is stopped after the normal rotation. For example, the wash water to which the rinsing liquid has been added is continuously supplied to disinfect the brush portion 120, and at this time, the wastewater pump 254 can be operated to drain the rinsing water to which the rinsing liquid has been added. Next, even when the motor 130 rotates in the reverse direction, the devices operate according to the same principle as when the motor 130 rotates in the forward direction, so that detailed description thereof will be omitted. On the other hand, when the motor 130 is stopped after the reverse rotation, the air valve 244 and the waste water pump 254 can operate. For example, in order to remove the washing water remaining in the brush portion 120, the supply of the washing water to the washing means 100 is stopped, and the brushing of the brush portion 120 and the drying air supplied from the air valve 244 The washing water remaining in the brush part 120 can be removed. At this time, the sewage pump 254 for draining the washing water remaining in the washing means 100 can be operated.
