Spanish translation:secar las vacas
Explanation:
Significa que las vacas dejen de producir leche, y se emplea "realmente" el término de "secar las vacas". Te adjunto dos explicaciones de la Web.

The method used to dry-off cows can significantly influence how many udder infections establish during the dry period. The aim is to shut down milk secretion and seal the teat canal as rapidly as possible – this usually takes about two weeks. Most new infections occur in quarters where the teat canal has not sealed.

Estamos en verano y pasan al estado de "secas" un buen porcentaje de las vacas lecheras que hoy están en producción. Cuándo, por qué y cómo realizar el secado son preguntas que el productor debe hacerse para obtener beneficios en las próximas lactancias
