Clean teats with motorised brush

WASH, disinfect and dry cows teats before milking without paper towels or dipping cups with the Puli-mamm Teat Washer, says UK agent Agri-Mec Farm Supplies.

Teats are cleaned by the motorised brushes using water and disinfectant, and the brushes also dry the teat. The cleaner is said to help reduce cell count and stimulate milk let-down by stripping the foremilk. Yet it is fast and easy to use, making the milkers job easier and quicker, adds Agri-Mec.

The system, including controller and installation, costs £2700 (01365-561600 or 01365-748222).
