GEA has introduced its new post-milking teat dip Effinity, which provides demonstrated mastitis killing power and excellent teat conditioning with no mixing in a ready-to-use package.
“Effinity is a great choice for your herd if you are looking for a non-iodine teat dip that is ready to use,” explained John Brooks, GEA director of hygiene sales (east). “It is also an excellent dip if the teat ends in your herd could use a cleanup, particularly after a period of harsh weather.”
Effinity uses two active ingredients, lactic acid and phenoxyethanol, and combines them with unique additives that work together to boost bactericidal efficacy. Thorough testing demonstrated Effinity’s killing power with a 99.99% kill rate on three of the leading mastitis-causing pathogens — Escherichia coli, Staphylococcus aureus and Streptococcus uberis, the company said in its announcement.
Effinity maintains a mild, stable pH of 3.5, making it gentler on teat skin and reducing the chance of irritation, GEA said. Its ingredient package also contains glycerin and lanolin, along with products commonly used in the cosmetic industry to promote optimal skin condition.
Dairy herds will benefit from the superior exfoliation effect of Effinity, seeing a renewed layer of healthy teat skin and softer, smoother teat ends after the first weeks of use, GEA said.
“Effinity has a distinct green color for easy confirmation of complete teat coverage,” Brooks added. “Plus, all GEA teat dips come with a 100% customer satisfaction guarantee.”
