Mark owner says, ‘The single biggest observation we’ve made is that our SCC dropped from 230,000 to 140,000. The only major change we made in our normal operation was the IMPULSE liner. Our teat end condition is much better than it was and we don’t have the spiders and teat-end scabs we did before. Overall, we are treating less cows! What fascinates me the most is the how dry the teats are after the unit has detached from the udder. The teats are bone-dry with the IMPULSE liner, and before the teat ends were wet after detachment. Our post dip can now work like it’s suppose to. If you don’t have the IMPULSE you should!”

We are happy with that considering we were struggling in the 300,000 range prior to trying the IMPULSE liners. Our teat ends began showing improvement in 3-4 weeks. We also have observed how relaxed our cows are when being milked and units are removed – no tugging at the claws as the units retract. We really like the way they detach! I don’t see us trying a different liner unless they can make these better! We are really happy with them!”
