Designed for cows, robots or humans: Unique teat spray/dip
Designed for the wear and tear of any number of milkings per day, Unique is a new teat spray/ dip that contains human cosmetic ingredient used in nipple cream for breastfeeding mums.
It is equally suitable for voluntary milking units (robots) and three-times, twice or even once-a-day milking.
And because an otherwise perfect spray/dip is worthless in clumsy hands, unique’s distinctive blue colouring makes it easy to see where this one goes.
The formula is indeed unique, secret and cannot be copied. It offers non-antibiotic antimicrobial effects, with natural skin conditioning for soft supple teat condition.
Used after milking, there is no sticky residue that would attract soiling of teat ends. In can also be used as a pre-milking cleanser.
Environmentally, it is non-toxic and biodegradable, so spills and drips have zero impact on slurry or drainage water.
Just as important, but skin condition overshadowed by teat end focus
An article in the respected US journal Progressive Dairyman points out that imperfect skin condition can cause agitation during milking, which it says will cause “…more manure splash onto teat ends, more kick-offs, more re-attaches and more cows leaving the parlor not milked out.”
It suggests that promoting better teat skin is like a 24-7 insurance policy on every teat in the herd. Read the full story by clicking here.
Why skin condition matters a lot for udder health
If you’ve ever suffered cracked or chapped skin on your hands – easily caused by dairy chemicals, for example – then you’ll know why skin care is so important for udder health.
Painful and always
Not only is damaged skin painful, you can never get it properly clean.
So in addition to teat ends in good condition, smooth healthy skin on the teat body also plays an important part in each cow’s natural defences against mastitis bugs.
Natural choice of professionals
Of course, no teat spray or dip can compensate for overdue new liners or a milking plant service.
But with these in place on professional dairy farms, your choice of teat spray/dip also plays a significant part in good udder health.
