Wash away teat contamination risk

IMPROVE hand hygiene and reduce the risk of teat contamination by switching to a disinfecting handwash from Deosan.

According to the company, milkers handle more than 400 teats at milking and the risk of cross-contamination, and hence raised Bactoscans, is high.

Sensisept is a mild handwash, said to combine the efficacy of high level disinfectant with dermatologically tested moisturisers.

It is available in 800ml cartridges, costing about £11 (01604-783338, 01604-783506). &#42
