For separating one quarter from the other three quarters in cases of colostrum, haemorrhage and high cell count (and antibiotic contamination where regulations allow). Guaranteed unbreakable.

Excess hair growth on udders can be a serious source of contamination of milk, and also a factor causing mastitis infections. Eliminating excess udder hair reduces significantly the amount of mud and manure accumulating on the udder. This dirt can be a significant cause of environmental mastitis. Udder Singe uses a low-temperature butane flame to burn hair away in 1-2 seconds, without causing any pain or damage to udder or teats tissue. Singing of udder hair is common practice in the northern hemisphere. The Shoof Udder Singe is supplied complete with a 600ml canister of butane gas. The wand is 75cm long with a plastic grip. The flame is controlled with an adjustable valve, to produce a ‘lazy yellow flame’ which will not burn the udder (This flame can be tested by running your hand through it). One can of gas should singe 300-400 udders.

For years farmers have tried various sprinkler systems to reduce flies and heat. Cool Cow is the new fly and heat control system from the New Zealand company Pesky Ideas. Cool Cow is the whole kit you need. It includes 65m of 4mm-i.d. heavy-wall plastic delivery line, plus all the fittings required to plumb it from your washdown pump pressure line. The plastic line is routed around the milking platform, herring bone, or rotary. It is then cut at regular points for the push-fit mister couplings to be installed (up to 30 of). A line cutting tool is supplied. The brass misters are then screwed into the couplings. A main tap and line filter are supplied. With the main tap on, the mist system operates as the yard pump is turned on and off as required.

Cool Cow is a great system for control of biting flies, and also for keeping cows cool and comfortable in the dairy. You will see immediate reduction in cow fidgeting, tail swinging, and cups kicked off. *The service kit includes one new filter plus 30 new misting nozzles. (These are recommended to be changed annually)

The Express LPG debudder is for use with regular 4kg and 9kg "barbecue" gas bottles. It is supplied complete with regulator and standard POL LPG bottle fitting. This unit is ideal for commercial operators, and for debudding larger groups of calves where continuous, uninterrupted operation is important. All parts are common to all Express debudders.

We think these buckets are the best available for the farmer. They are made from 0.6mm 202-grade stainless steel and have a large diameter ‘chime’ (stand) which makes the bucket more stable, prevents denting of the bottom, and gives a grip to enable controlled pouring from the bucket. Also very well priced. Dimensions (neck width x height o.a.): 7L = 250mm x 290mm; 10L =270mm x 320mm; 13L = 320mm x 330mm.
Seamless 202 and 304 stainless steel. Pressed seamless bottom (without grip ring). Sturdy handles which fold outwards to enhance stacking. Lids cover bucket entirely, ensuring debris on top does not enter when removing lid. Finger ring on top folds down. These are very nice buckets at a very good price. (Not volume graduated.) Dimensions (neck width x height o.a.): 7L = 23cm x 21cm; 10L = 26cm x 25cm; 17L = 28cm x 27cm.
