The Uses of Veterinary Wipes in the Dairy Industry

Did you know that wet wipes are used in the dairy industry? In fact, not only are they used, but they are critical to healthy cows. With over 25 years experience as a veterinary wet wipes manufacturer, we know that hygiene is a key factor in the dairy industry.

Mastitis in cows, called bovine mastitis, is a condition typified by the persistent and inflammatory reaction of the udder tissue, it is a potentially fatal mammary gland infection, and is the most common disease in dairy cattle worldwide. It is the most devastating disease in the dairy industry costing farms more money than is worth. 

 

Treatment of the disease is carried out by penicillin injection in combination with a sulphar drug, which is both timely and costly. So as the saying goes, prevention is better than cure.

So how do farmers go about preventing bovine mastitis from occurring in their cattle? Consistency in sanitizing the cow and the teats is a must. Albaad’s dairy wipes help maintain the hygiene of cow udders during pre- and post-milking and without the need to rinse and dry the skin, these wipes are impregnated with a disinfectant bactericide and contain a conditioner to replace moisture to keep teats supple and healthy. By keeping the udders clean, stops the transfer from cow to cow, and keeps the machinery clean and hygienic. As dirt usually contains a lot of bacteria, the aim is to keep the cows udder clean, and free of dirt. 

 

By keeping the cows udder clean with a veterinary wipe, and therefore keeping bovine mastitis levels down, this indirectly contributes to a higher yield in milk production and better milk quality.
