Lely North America announces the launch of its Lely Quaress Omnia teat spray as part of the company's aftermarket consumables line. This U.S.-only product is an affordable teat spray that is designed for teat disinfection, protection and conditioning. The product is a non-iodine concentrate that can be used in all milking systems. When utilized with the Lely Astronaut A5 robotic milking system, it is applied as a post-milking teat spray.

“Dairy producers benefit from the Lely Quaress Omnia teat spray because of its fast kill of mastitis-causing pathogens and blend of emollients for teat skin protection,” said Steve Kraft, aftermarket field support manager. “Because this product is a concentrate, it is a more economical option as far as cost per gallon and ultimately means less waste.”

The product has proven to have a high microbiocidal efficacy for improved udder health. The company says its formula features a swift kill of 99.999% of mastitis-causing pathogens, including S. aureus, E. coli, Pseudomonas, S. dysgalactiae, S. agalactiae, S. uberis, K. pneumoniae and E. aerogenes. Unlike teat care products that contain iodine or chlorhexidine, Lely reports the product has no potential for adverse chemicals to become residuals in milk. This solution delivers a 15-second kill of wild strains of S. aureus that is three times faster than competitive iodine treatments.

The product's 8% conditioning blend of emollients is comprised of organic acids, including pelargonic acid, lactic acid and dodecylbenzene sulfonic acid (DDBSA). The natural components of this formula condition, exfoliate, hydrate and protect the udder for smooth, soft skin and overall improved cow welfare.

With its unique combination of active ingredients and emollients, Lely Quaress Omnia is designed to improve cows’ udder health, which ultimately contributes to increased profitability for dairy producers’ businesses.
