How Teatscrubber Prep System Works

The FutureCow Teatscrubber Prep System gives you a consistent teat prep process to ensure every cow is prepped correctly, no matter who is doing the milking.  Teatscrubber handles each step – wash, disinfect, stimulate and dry – all in one repeatable process, eliminating the need for towels too!

Wash Cycle

Wash cycle is activated when the trigger is pressed. While it is held down our patented solution will flow freely. Now move from teat to teat, starting with the back teat, and clean each teat in a clockwise motion.

Dry Cycle

Dry cycle starts when the trigger is released. Solution stops flowing and the brushes continue to spin. Excess solution is wicked off of each teat by the brushes.  Dry each teat in the same order you cleaned them.

Lag Time

We recommend you repeat the wash and dry sequence for 8-12 cows before attaching milking clusters.  Following this process allows you to hit the recommended lag time of 90-120 seconds before attachment.

Teatscrubber Features & Design

FutureCow Teatscrubber Prep System Features

Teatscrubber Weight – Impact on Milkers

Generally, milkers become accustomed to using the Teatscrubber within 2 weeks. They will gain muscle memory from using the scrubber and quickly adapt. Milkers benefit from walking back and forth less, no heavy buckets of towels or trash to carry, and no aprons full of towels. Overall muscle activity is reduced when using Teatscrubber as compared to traditional prep.

Study – Teatscrubber vs. Standard Prep  
“If parlor production requirements (e.g., quality and consistency) are maintained while simultaneously reducing cumulative muscle loading and worker fatigue, then TS use should be considered in milking parlor operations.”
