  CELL CHECK – TIP OF THE MONTH

 
Teat Dissinfection
• If using a concentrate teat disinfectant, mix according to label directions. – Use water of very high quality.

• Use at least 15 ml/cow/milking to get good coverage when spraying (or 10 ml/cow/milking if using a dip cup).

• Check the spray pattern regularly, and change or service the nozzles if necessary.

• If dipping, rinse out the dip cup when the teat dip gets low – don’t just top it up. This reduces the risk of milk or other organic material accumulating in the dip cup. Clean it out immediately if dirt/manure drops into the cup. For good mastitis control, the goal is to cover all the skin, on all of the teats, of all of the cows, all of the time!
