Swinging Cow Brush SCB
Every day, DeLaval Swinging Cow Brushes are grooming 4 million cows around the world. 4 million cows cannot be wrong.
The DeLaval swinging cow brush SCB is designed to improve cow health, comfort and welfare. The swinging cow brush SCB, which starts to rotate on contact, is a revolution in cow care and cow comfort. The unique brush rotates at an animal-friendly speed, swings freely in all directions, smoothly up, over and alongside the cow to provide comfort all around, promoting milk production cow comfort and cow longevity. The extra milk production attributed to using the brush is estimated to represent around five million glasses per day.
DeLaval pioneered and patented the swinging cow brush: first to invent it, first in cow comfort. The unique, cow-friendly design lets it swing freely onto the cow’s back or head, over and along her sides. With DeLaval SCB, every cow in your herd can groom herself all over.
