The Teatwand Parallel is the first and only ‘parallel parlor ’ in-parlor automated teat spraying system in the world. The system utilizes a gantry system to transport each spray arm down the parlor to accurately spray the cows’ teats before and after milking. A typical installation for a parlor from 40-60 stalls consists of four arms controlled by a centralized control system. It will place the spray nozzles directly under the cows’ teats ensuring accurate and consistent spray placement. A unique safety system allows the four arms to operate in the parlor safely while the milkers are working.
