An Automatic Teat Spraying System designed by a Mastitis Specialist to combat one of dairying’s biggest problems, Mastitis.
Labour Savings without any compromises!
Thorough teat spray coverage of all four teats is achieved with the use of two independently controlled spray nozzles that extend under the cows’ udder as the rotary platform passes. A touchscreen controller is used to set spray sequences, a laser sensor reads the cows position in the stall and the correct sequence is automatically selected.
A patented safety design protects the cow and the Teatwand.
Close to 1000 systems were installed globally by 2020. The Teatwand Exact is easily retrofittable to all existing rotary platform brands and can be included in any new dairy project.
The Teatwand Rapid system is based on the Teatwand Exact spraying concept. Two Teatwands mounted on a moving slide that follows the rotary platform as it passes and sprays two stalls simultaneously.
The Fastest Effective Automatic Teat Spray System in the World!
The Teatwand Rapid was developed for large fast-moving rotary platforms.
Speeds as fast as 3.5 seconds per stall are well within the Teatwand Rapid capabilities.
Thirty systems have been installed to date, with additional installations planned for 2021.
The Spread Eagle leg spreader is a device that is fixed to the surface of the rotary platform in each stall to encourage the cow to stand with her legs apart.
It is essential that Spread Eagle leg spreaders are fitted to the rotary platform prior to installing any Teatwand system.
The Spread Eagle leg spreaders ensure the cow stands in the correct position for any Teatwand system to successfully spray the teats. They also make the task of attaching the Cups/Cluster much easier for dairy staff as the cows teats are always accessible.
There are two styles of Spread Eagle leg spreader. Moulded polycarbonate composite or fabricated stainless steel. Either style can be fitted to any rotary platform.
Spread Eagle leg spreaders can be fitted permanently to the deck or there are options to have them removable, they can also be fitted to rubber mats. In some cases a supporting spacer plate may be required.
