DELAVAL - SWINGING COW BRUSH (2004) - 2 stars
The swinging cow brush is a world wide exclusivity for DeLaval. The energy staff / stop function of the swinging cow
brush is an energy saving function operated by ball switches on the PCBoard that staffs the brush rotation (22 rounds/
min) when set in motion by a cow and stops the brush alter 10 sec if no motion is detected.
Two strong springs
mounted on the top of the vertical brush also provide another 'pendular motion' of the whole brush, according to the
pressure of the animal. This unique brush swings really free in all direction rotating smoothly up, over and alongside
The brush length is optimal (18 cm), the same for the hardness so that it provides for the animal an efficient blood
circulation. Pre-mounted so it is easy to install, the cylindrical brush is delivered with a complete wall installation kit,
but is also suitable for post installation. One swinging cow brush can groom 50 to 60 cows, so one brush may be sufficient for an average farm.
Point of view of the jury: improves cows' welfare
