New digital EasiFoamer™ replaces AutoFoamer™

Following the successful completion of final on-farm validation trials Ambic has launched its new digital EasiFoamer™ system to replace its first generation AutoFoamer™ system, which is based on old analogue technology.

Like the AutoFoamer™ the new EasiFoamer™ automates the process of foam generation to provide a constant supply of high quality foam for teat preparation and sanitisation. However, the new EasiFoamer™ system comes with the following additional features and benefits:

  • Easy adjustment of chemical and air flow to achieve optimum foam quality
  • Keypad and digital display for ease of set up, adjustment and performance monitoring
  • Prime facility for easy start-up and easy refreshing of chemical
  • Low level alarm to warn when chemical level is running low
  • Maintenance reminders, such as for peristaltic pump tube changes
  • Monitoring of chemical consumption

Whilst AutoFoamer™ spares are readily available, please note that all future orders received for complete AutoFoamer™ systems will now be processed and supplied as EasiFoamer™ systems.

Many of the components of the EasiFoamer™ system are interchangeable between the old AutoFoamer™ range and the new EasiFoamer™ range. The Ambic Product Guide shows clearly those parts which are unique to either the AutoFoamer™ range or the EasiFoamer™ range as well as those parts which are common to both models.

Ambic Supports Farmers’ Talk on Mastitis

Ambic recently supported Animal Vet Services, (www.avshayle.co.uk) a large animal vet practice in the South West of England, which organised a dairy farmer’s meeting on mastitis and dry cow therapy.

The guest speaker was Andy Biggs BVSc, MRCVS, who is a leading expert on mastitis and has travelled extensively, consulting on the subject in countries as far afield as China and Chile. Fresh from TV and radio interviews with the BBC that day, Andy covered targeted antibiotic treatment for drying off cows before calving, cleanliness in the parlour and application of different treatment regimens for the dairy cow.

Mark Cinderey, Ambic’s International Sales Manager attended the event and spoke to around 40 dairy farmers who attended the event at The Smuggler’s Inn in St Erth.

The event was sponsored by a number of companies active in the dairy industry, including Ambic.

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.
