Ambic adds Quarter Milk Isolator to its range – QMI™

Ambic has introduced a new Quarter Milk Isolator to its product range. It is designed to isolate the milk of one quarter from the other three during milking. It is a particularly useful device for managing milk quality in cases where elevated somatic cell counts (SCC) are observed in one quarter.

Isolating the milk from a high SCC quarter by using the Ambic Quarter Milk Isolator can significantly lower the SCC level in the bulk milk tank and so help to generate higher milk premiums.

Ambic presents Locate’n’Spray™ research finding at British Mastitis Conference

A poster presented at the British Mastitis Conference was chosen by the Organising Committee for an oral presentation at the annual meeting held in Worcester on Wednesday, 12th November 2014. The paper was presented by Richard May, who has been a key member of Ambic’s Locate’n’Spray™ development team.

The paper presented the results of an independent study commissioned by Ambic to assess the effectiveness of the Company’s newly developed automated teat spray system which has been designed to automate the pre-milking and post-milking teat spraying routines, particularly on rotary milking parlours.

The study looked at a variety of teat spray regimes and concluded that a ½ second spray regime provided teat coverage at least as good as manual spraying with comparable teat dip consumption, whilst the 1 second spray regime achieved consistently a better hit rate and teat coverage than manual spraying.

The main advantages of the Locate’n’Spray system were identified as the ability to make valuable savings of labour time and cost during milking, combined with the considerable benefit of  additional time being freed up to focus on udder health and milking management.

The adjustability of the teat spray system means it can be configured to suit both cost minimisation and udder health maximisation regimes.

Ambic Acquires a New Product Line

Ambic secured an exclusive licence in December 2013 for the manufacture and distribution of the product line of US business RJ Boudreau Inc., based in Modesto, California.

The RJB product line is complimentary to the Ambic product range and will provide customers with even greater choice by enabling the Company to make a more comprehensive range of udder health and livestock health management products available.

Both the Ambic and RJB brands will continue as before since both have strong brand equity in a number of key markets;  there is also a strong desire to preserve their respective brand identities.

“By acquiring a licence to the RJB range we are not only extending our product range, but also expanding our customer base, particularly in the US, “ says Mark Cinderey, Ambic’s International Sales Manager. “It will provide us with the opportunity to implement a dual brand strategy with the RJB products selling alongside the existing Ambic range.”

Ambic is currently focused on completing the transfer and integration of the business into its UK manufacturing and distribution operation, based in Witney, UK.

This deal follows Ambic’s acquisition of Peristaltic Pump business RF Electronic Controls (RFE) in July 2013 – a UK company that produces pumps and associated products to control the dilution and dosing of chemicals used on dairy farms for cleaning milking systems and milk tanks – as well as being used in systems for pre- and post- teat sanitisation.
