Clean cows – and a dry dairyman

STAY dry in the parlour by covering up with this waterproof apron – available free when you buy Countdown teat sanitiser, says DiverseyLever.

Countdown is a dip for use before milking which contains a fast-acting biocide to destroy bacteria, says DiverseyLever. The dip is designed to reduce the bacteria that can enter milk during milking. It is also said to be kind to cows teats.

A five-litre drum that is diluted 1:10 for use costs about £25 with a free apron (01604-783507, fax 01604-783506).
