Cluster Washers

The Cotswold Automatic Cluster Flush System is a very effective way of sanitizing the milking units between cows

Overview

The milking cluster is a known reservoir of bacteria responsible for mastitis being passed from cow to cow during milking.  Using typical pre-milking routines can mean that dirty or contaminated clusters are often attached to clean sanitised teats.

Sanitising clusters between cows is a recognised means of reducing the transfer of mastitis from cow to cow during milking.  Any milk residues which may contain mastitis-causing pathogens from infected cows or contaminated teats are washed from the cluster unit before the opportunity occurs for them to infect the next cow to be milked.

  • Milking hygiene is integral to the control and reduction of mastitis.

  • The typical benefits we have seen throughout our installations include:

    • Cell Count Reduction
    • Reduction in Clinical Mastitis – in typical installations we have seen reductions of between 75% – 90%
    • Financial Gains – achieved from both the reduction in mastitis incidents which are estimated to cost £250 per incident and achieving higher milk prices with the production of higher quality milk
    • Time Savings
    • Labour Reduction

The Cotswold Automatic Cluster Flush System is a very effective way of sanitizing the milking units between cows and so minimising the transfer of contagious mastitis organisms, with a clean cluster on every cow.  Our unique liquid/pressure cylinder, design means that unlike other systems on the market, no water/peracetic acid mix goes through the solenoid valves, only compressed air.

This makes for a much more reliable system and cuts down on expensive solenoid valve replacements
