Farm dairy legislation prohibits any non-complying thermometer even being in a registered dairy premise. No thermometers containing mercury or glass comply. Our Dairy Special thermometer has no mercury or glass. Its dial scale is very easy to read. It is pocket size and very reasonably priced. The pen-clip sheath doubles as an extension handle. Dial is 25mm diameter with red pointer. Scale -5°Cto 115°C. Length 14cm o.a.
When a teat has a damaged sphincter the drain can be inserted for an extended period, with the plug being removed and replaced at each milking. Drains are not supplied sterile, but in a pot with jelly to secure and make for easy removal. Recap after use. Swab teat tip before insertion. Do not reuse. Do not apply milking cup. Leave teat to drain naturally whilst other quarters are milked. Resume machine milking after drain is removed. Dimension is cannula length.
Plastic drain with brass insert pin. Supplied with two stop plugs. This drain is very long, with little external protuberance, making it least likely to become dislodged between milkings. Length of cannula insert 70mm. Individually sterile packed.
This stainless steel teat drain has a sliding stopper to keep teat penetration to the desired depth. Very useful after accidental damage, or surgery to teats, to let milk flow after let-down, without vacuum applied. Should be removed after milking. Length 62mm o.a., but ferrule part can be slid along shaft to desired insert depth.
As with our well known and very economical short and long nozzle teat sprayers, our new Viton models are light and convenient to use. The difference is the chemical resistant Viton rubber valve and seal components. Standard teat spray chemicals quite quickly break down normal rubber seal components, but Viton lasts significantly longer. Although the cost is quite a bit higher, the extra life and consequent reduction of frustration, is well worth the extra cost. Bottle capacity 1 litre.
