Answer:
Thanks for your inquiry and your trust in our products and company; we have some points to inform you before selection the instruments.
1)  Electromagnetic flow meter is a better choice to measure milk; also the price is much cheaper than oval gear flow meter. 
We have a lot of application to measure milk flow by Electromagnetic flow meter with all stainless steel material.
2) The oval meter is much heavier than Electromagnetic flow meter, around 20 kg for DN40, while electromagnetic flow meter is around 9 kg.  So the shipping cost is higher for oval flow meter. 

However we choose electromagnetic & Oval Gear both for your milk flow measurement for your reference
