Designed for the wear and tear of any number of milkings per day, Unique is a new teat spray/ dip that contains human cosmetic ingredient used in nipple cream for breastfeeding mums. It is equally suitable for voluntary milking units (robots) and three-times, twice or even once-a-day milking.

And because an otherwise perfect spray/dip is worthless in clumsy hands, Unique’s distinctive blue colouring makes it easy to see where this one goes. The formula is indeed unique, secret and cannot be copied. It offers non-antibiotic antimicrobial effects, with natural skin conditioning for soft supple teat condition. Used after milking, there is no sticky residue that would attract soiling of teat ends. In can also be used as a pre-milking cleanser. Developed at EnviroSystems UK Ltd by in-house microbiologists the product has been trialled and tested on a number of dairy farms across the UK and in Finland with successful results. This ready-to-use product is available in IBCs (1,000 litre), 200 litre or 20 litre drums.

Environmentally, it is non-toxic and biodegradable, so spills and drips have zero impact on slurry or drainage. If you’ve ever suffered cracked or chapped on your hands – easily caused by dairy chemicals, for example – then you’ll know why skin care is so important for udder health. Not only is damaged skin painful, you can never get it properly clean. So in addition to teat ends in good condition, smooth healthy skin on the teat body also plays an important part in each cow’s natural defences against mastitis bugs.
