Auto Teat Sprayer For Rotary Milkers
A new patent-pending rotary teat dip sprayer called the Rota-Coat fits on all models of rotary milking systems, says Jason LeGassick, Sales and Marketing Manager for BECO Dairy Automation Inc.
“It provides extremely good coverage with minimal teat dip usage,” he says. “The Rota-Coat will work on a large range of rotary speeds, making a revolution as low as three seconds.”
The plug-and-play unit bolts to the floor and a nozzle moves in a circular motion between the cows’ legs and sprays as the cows pass by on the rotary milking parlor. Using algorithms, an encoder senses the speed of the parlor and position of the cow to spray accurately.
BECO, a Hanford, Calif., company that has manufactured automated milking equipment since the 1970’s, spent a year and a half testing the Rota-Coat. It fills a niche as it’s priced economically with the coverage and accuracy of much more expensive spray robots.
The international company provides the Rota-Coat for free to customers who purchase BECO teat dips.
For more information contact the company or a dealer.
