Teat Wand

The Teatwand Stepover

The Teatwand 400

Automatic teat sprayer was developed in 2008 to address the problems associated with poor teat spray coverage associated with stationary platform and in race walkover teat sprayers.

The new innovations that were incorporated in the TEATWAND 400 are:

  • A moving arm that moves 400mm under the udder to obtain better reach and better coverage of all 4 teats.

  • The use of a flexible spring so the arm flexes if it comes into contact with cows legs or any milking machine parts avoiding harm to cow and equipment.

  • The TEATWAND 400 is programmed to adjust to different platform speeds so that no adjustment is necessary for morning or afternoon milking.

  • The use of smart sensors so that it will only spray if there is a cow in the bail with no cups attached.

  • As there is only one spray solenoid and one spray nozzle it allows the use of the best quality components for reliability. The spray nozzle is self- cleaning, so dirt and fecal matter will not block the nozzle.

  • All stainless construction means longevity is built-in.

Teat Wand Exact

This new development in the Teatwand concept has taken another step forward with the incorporation of:

  • Longer reach-500mm, which enables the arm to reach beyond the front teats.

  • Two nozzles- one facing forward and one facing backwards so that all sides of the teats are fully covered.

  • The addition of a cow position sensor to finely tune the timing of the spray start.

  • A new intelligent control system, which allows 3 bursts of spray instead of a continuous spray.

  • The combination of the cow position sensor and the new intelligent control system minimizes spray usage yet provides excellent coverage of all sides of all 4 teats. Typical spray usage is below 20mls/cow.

  • The spray savings and the better coverage will soon pay for the cost of the TEATWAND EXACT in reduced teat spray usage, less clinical mastitis and lower SCC.


Spread Eagle

The Spread Eagle is a supplementary device for the Teatwand that ensures the cow is in the correct position for teat spraying ensuring full coverage of all four teats.

Other benefits:

  1. Ease of cupping

  2. Less animal movement and kicking during milking

  3. A cleaner, easier, faster and more efficient milking.
