Teat sprayer re­li­able and pre­cise

Matamata Chronicle - - News -

Ud­der health and teat con­di­tion are ma­jor fac­tors in mas­ti­tis man­age­ment. Many stud­ies have shown that teat spray­ing to en­sure good teat and ud­der health re­duces mas­ti­tis by 50 to 60 per cent.

How­ever, it must be done well to be ef­fec­tive.

The job of man­u­ally teat spray­ing can be dif­fi­cult and time-con­sum­ing, of­ten re­sult­ing in in­con­sis­tent cov­er­age.

Au­to­matic teat spray­ing is an ex­cel­lent so­lu­tion to en­sur­ing con­sis­tent per­for­mance, pro­vided you choose the right sys­tem.

The WETiT QD0 in-race teat sprayer, as seen in Shane and Sarah Gold­smith’s shed, is the brain­child of de­signer/ di­rec­tor David Carey, whose aim has al­ways been to de­velop a sys­tem which sprays more re­li­ably and ac­cu­rately than a per­son.

The QD0 has a lengthy de­tec­tion zone and uses in­no­va­tive com­puter tech­nol­ogy which mon­i­tors ev­ery cow, switch­ing on and off at dif­fer­ent po­si­tions, en­sur­ing the ud­der is sprayed with the best cov­er­age pos­si­ble.

Ev­ery cow, re­gard­less of its move­ment, size or shape is guar­an­teed to be ac­cu­rately sprayed.

Even ‘‘clever’’ cows which de­lib­er­ately try to avoid the teat sprayer can’t fool this sys­tem.

In ad­di­tion to the ‘‘how and when to spray’’ tech­nol­ogy, the sys­tem uses four noz­zles, an­gled and ac­cu­rately con­trolled with high pres­sure to en­sure com­plete teat bar­rel and ud­der cov­er­age.

WETiT teat sprayers are de­signed by a com­pany which has spe­cialised in au­to­matic teat spray­ing for the past two decades.

Their ex­ten­sive re­search and de­vel­op­ment in­cludes slow mo­tion video, on-farm test­ing and sub­stan­tial farmer feed­back, mak­ing them ar­guably the most knowl­edge­able team in the world when it comes to au­to­matic teat sprayers and ac­ces­sories.

The com­pany has a rep­u­ta­tion for pro­duc­ing top-of-the-line equip­ment backed up by a ded­i­cated tech­ni­cal sup­port team fo­cused on cus­tomer sat­is­fac­tion.

They back up their prom­ises with a mon­ey­back sat­is­fac­tion guar­an­tee, 18-month war­ranty and a free phone num­ber for tech­ni­cal sup­port and as­sis­tance.

If you want to au­to­mate your teat spray­ing with the best pos­si­ble cov­er­age and ac­cu­racy, the team at WETiT are al­ways happy to take the time to work with you per­son­ally to pro­duce a so­lu­tion for your spe­cific re­quire­ments.
