The aim of the study was to found out response of ewes to machine milking through the evaluation of the milk flow curves. Repeated measurements of milk flow characteristics were done in Tsigai, Improoved Valachian, Lacaune and crossbred ewes using measuring device with electomagnetic rod situated in cylinder allowing every second measurements of level of milk in the cylinder. Four types of milk flow curves were distinguished and and their impacts on characteristics of milkability were studied.
