The job of taking care of Animals has never been easy even far back in history. It is quite a tedious job such that some people cannot afford to take up the job even when the payment is good, putting into considerations; the smell of the animal fieces, the unpleasant noises and the nature of the Animals.
Rearing cattles on the other hand had never been an easy task bearing in mind the same problems mentioned above. Cattles have been known to accumulate so much dirt on their skin besides the dirt, some fiece do hang around the cow's anus after every excretion of fiece, these problems usually cause flies and other animals like birds to always hang around the cow to eat from their skin contaminated particles, the condition usually makes the cows to be uncomfortable which can be noticed from their constant waving of their tails to scare away the flies and sometimes scratching their skin on a tree or wood.
Having seen such challenge for the cattle rearers, the Engineers have decided to provide a possible solution so that the cows' skin will contain little or no dirt and thus making it impossible for flies to hang around them.
The answer Engineers offered to that effect was the development of the cows' brush. It is a for the , developed with accurate working arrangement, precision and effective functions.
Cows' brush is not like most Agricultural machines which are usually large in size, it is a simple and yet effective that can be hanged in a place where the cattles are usually reared. It is made with super speed electric motor attached with a cylinder-like shaped brush having small thick toothed brushes around it. It rotates in both clockwise and anti-clockwise directions and has the ability of turning the brushes in 360 degrees rotation while the motor is still turning.
Besides the above features, it is also automatic which makes it easy to start itself whenever any cow comes in contact with the brush and stops the moment the cow leaves. Such function helps to save the energy and help to prolong the machine's service life.
The can be hanged on top of a structure above the cows so that its brush face downward to make good contact with the cow's skin as shown in the picture below or can be fixed on a wall so that the brush protrude outward to make good contact with the cow's skin as also shown in the picture below, whichever method being choosed the functionalities of the remains the same.
From the pictures one can see how friendly it is with the cows and the cows also find it very useful, hence visit the regularly for removal of diirt from their skin. It is built in such a way that when the cow moves in any direction the brush will rotate in a direction that throws the dirt away and when moving backwards the brush also changes its direction of rotation to ensure good contact and comfortable dirt removal.
Meanwhile the speed can be controlled to suit any condition and the brush can be replaced or serviced regularly. It is time to give cows the comfortable life the Engineers have made possible. Don't you think so?
