1. What do you need a cow brush for?
The body care of a cow is particularly important, because cows have a natural need to scratch themselves. In order to support the cows in this, the animals are provided with a cow brush (also cattle brush, cow cleaning brush or cow cleaning machine). On average, cows visit such cattle brushes or cow cleaning machines for 15 minutes a day.
If you don't have a cow cleaning machine where your cows can be scratched and massaged extensively, then your herd will use other scratching options in the form of stable accessories such as Watering places, walls, posts or bushes, trees etc. in the pasture, which in turn can lead to injuries and costly damage.
With a cow brush, your cows can independently remove parasites and dirt from their fur and be pampered. This additional cow comfort has a positive effect on the well-being and health of your cows. A happy cow gives a higher milk yield, which in turn is good for your wallet. So you can increase the monthly income in the dairy industry with a cow cleaning machine.
2. Advantages of a cow brush:
If you compare the contribution to the cost of a cow brush with the numerous advantages that come with it, you will quickly see that it is worth purchasing a cow brush. A cow brush has many advantages for your herd and dairy industry:
Minimize the risk of injury: If cows scratch sharp or pointed objects, injuries are often associated with the scratching process. If the cows rub against a cow cleaning machine, then the animals cannot injure themselves so quickly. This saves you expensive medication and visits from the vet.
Less production downtimes: Injuries lead to production downtimes and take up valuable time. With a cow cleaning machine that satisfies the natural itching and scratching needs of your cows, you save your time and can continue your production operations without downtime.
Avoid damage in the barn: without a cow brush, the cows like to choose another favorite spot in the barn to scratch and scrub. This place is then used by all other herd members for scratching. This leads to expensive repair costs and possible injury and safety risks.
Contaminated drinking water: If the cows scrub against the drinking bowl or water trough, the abrasion then gets into the cow's drinking trough. Due to the pollution of the drinking water, the cows take in less water, which has a negative effect on feed intake and milk yield.
Make more money: Brushing with a cow brush stimulates the cow's metabolism and improves blood circulation in the skin. The cow's digestion is supported and this in turn increases the amount of milk produced in many animals. The cow brush demonstrably helps to increase productivity and thus the monthly profit.
Automatic fur care: By frequently scratching and rubbing on a cow brush, your cows can free themselves of all dirt, dust, parasites etc. A cow brush automatically ensures a clean, smooth and well-groomed cow hide and makes daily grooming easier for you.
Cow health: A cow brush has a positive effect on the health of your herd because the risk of mange in the stable can be reduced with regular grooming. The infestation of other parasites is also reduced by extensive scratching and rubbing.
3. You should consider the following when buying a good cow brush:
Before going for a cow brush and buy it cheaply in our Agrarzone online shop, you should make a few considerations. Place of use, precautionary measures and operation - There are a few criteria that you should consider when buying a good cow cleaning brush:
Operation: There are electric cattle brushes and mechanical cattle brushes. A mechanical cow brush is particularly energy-saving and inexpensive to buy. A electric cow brush, on the other hand, better satisfies the cows' need to scratch. The large area of rotating brushing and massaging means that the skin is better supplied with blood and the metabolism is stimulated.
Holistic grooming: cows prefer to scrub their heads, necks and backs. For optimal fur care, a cow brush should get to these important parts of the body. A two-bristle cow brush covers all important areas of the body and is therefore usually preferable.
Replacement brush: With around 60 cows per cow brush, a cow brush will last an average of 4-5 years. Before buying a cow brush, it is best to make sure that a replacement brush is available and that it can be exchanged easily and without Problems.
Saving energy: If you opt for an electric cow brush, then choose an energy-saving model with an automatic switch-off device. This saves you energy when the cow brush is not in use.
Location: Many cattle brushes can either be attached to the walls, ceilings, the floor or outdoors in a cattle shed. In any case, you should adapt the cow brush to the local conditions. The cow brush needs enough space, a stable assembly and optionally a power supply. If you mount the cow brush outdoors, pay attention to the manufacturer's instructions: Is the cow brush suitable for outdoor use? Does the cow brush meet the required IP protection class?
- Animal welfare: A good cattle brush should brush and care for the cow hide in as many places as possible without injuring the cow. In order to protect your cows and avoid injuries, when buying an electric cow brush, make sure that the cow cleaning machine fulfills various safety aspects such as an automatic switch-off when the cow's tail gets tangled in the cow brush. The cow brush should also meet the manufacturer's instructions (like tail hair length).

- Observe the height at the withers of your own cattle and the manufacturer's specifications so that the cow cleaning brush can work properly.
- A powered cow brush should have a power source nearby. The cows must not have access to the power connection or the socket.
- The power cables should also not be accessible to the cows and should be protected from being bitten or kicked.
