Want to save money on your pre-milking routine without compromising on quality? Then why not replace your disposable single service paper towels with the economical and re-useable Dermatex udder cloth system from GEA Farm Technologies.
“Replacing paper towels with a re-usable cloth such as Dermatex cuts costs without compromising on the condition or cleanliness of your cows teats,” says GEA Farm Technologies Farm Services Manager, Melanie Heath.
“Dermatex re-usable cloths are for use before milking to disinfect and clean the cows’ teats. Using a clean Dermatex cloth for each cow, one cloth will last approximately 10 months depending on farm conditions, making it more economical than using single service paper towels.”
Cheshire based dairy farmer, Philip Brocklehurst, said: “Changing from paper towels to Dermatex cloths is the best thing I’ve ever done. Since using the cloths my bactoscans have reduced from an average of 28 to 8 and my SCC has reduced from 160 to 98, plus my milking time has reduced by 35 minutes and yields are increasing too.
“Using these cloths has saved me time and money so I really would recommend them to all farmers who produce milk” Mr Brocklehurst continued.
