Choosing the right teat prep system is an important decision. So, we assembled a list of the most common questions we get asked by farmers around the world.
How does the Teatscrubber Prep System help with stimulation and letdown?
The Teatscrubber vastly improves tactile stimulation with more consistency to ensure the system will effectively stimulate every cow, no matter who is using it.
Will I need to use towels with your system?
No, the Teatscrubber does the drying for you which allows you to eliminate the cost of towels, washing machines and dryers in most cases.
How does the weight of the Teatscrubber compare to manual teat prep?
Generally, milkers are accustomed to the Teatscrubber within 2 weeks. They will gain muscle memory from using the Teatscrubber 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.
“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.”
How does the Teatscrubber Prep System help improve SCC counts?
FutureCow helps improve Somatic Cell Counts by eliminating the organic material from the teats and using a highly effective disinfectant solution (chlorine dioxide) that kills most pathogens quickly, while improving teat end health and reducing hyperkeratosis.
How does the Teatscrubber Prep System help lower cases of Mastitis?
