A brush with greatness!
The FutureCow® Prep System from GEA accomplishes multiple pre-milking procedures in one easy step. The system features a mechanical brush unit that gently washes, disinfects, stimulates and dries all in one visit to the cow.
Milking is made easy with the FutureCow® Prep System
Streamlined and consistent cow prep — allows for a more efficient parlor and greater parlor labor productivity — even increasing the number of cows milked per hour. Consistent prep procedures optimize the milking process and oftentimes aid in increasing production.
Superior udder stimulation — can increase milk flow rates and decrease milking times, further improving parlor throughput. Faster milking times also benefits teat condition.
Improved teat health and milk quality — the durable, yet soft, multi-layered brushes accommodate all teat lengths and ensure teat-ends are properly cleaned before the milking unit is applied.
Fixed cost for pre-milking prep — flat rate per cow pricing provides consistent and easily managed cost. (U.S. ONLY)
A system for all herd sizes — whether you milk 50, 500, or 5,000 cows or more, there is a FutureCow® Prep System to accommodate any herd size.
Installed and supported by GEA dealers — a professional network with unsurpassed dairy equipment experience available 24/7.
How the Brush Unit Works
• The brush units are mounted to a cable in the parlor, allowing the unit to move from cow to cow. The operator pulls a trigger to start the rotating brushes and dispense solution. The operator cleans each teat then releases the trigger, to stop the flow of solution.??
• The brushes continue rotating to wick moisture away from the teats. The operator then moves to the next cow and repeats the process. Your GEA dealer will discuss your parlor efficiency goals and customize the brush timing accordingly.
|The brush unit is connected to the control in the chemical room which delivers power and solution to the brush unit. Motor sensors protect the system from unexpected challenges, such as tails getting caught in the brushes.|
