Well known for many years, Cow Brushes or Comfort Brushes improve the life of livestock, in fact they are required by law in some countries like Denmark to be installed for their use! The BellyBrush is the only brush in the world that can provide comfort underneath. A proactive management practice that focuses on providing cows with a high level of comfort. The BellyBrush is a stationary cow brush that reinforces’ natural grooming habits and helps improve circulation and mental health.
The midline (belly) is the most unprotected area on livestock, and because flying insects are the most common disease transmission vectors, fly control is an essential part of management. Self-brushing tools have been proven to reduce cases of clinical mastitis and the BellyBrush is the only tool targeting that most unprotected area on large animals, the underside, from the chin to the utters.
