Our rubber comes from selected regions that have a premium natural resource to give the rubber the right tension and pliability. When the rubber arrives, we make some teats, and test them in our feeding simulator. As far as we know, we are the only company that does this.
We accept teats that perform at 20 hours in the simulator. This is around 100 feeds at the optimum flow rate. Any more than that and it’s too hard for the calves to drink, any less and the teats don’t last, it’s a fine line! Rubber that doesn’t perform to our specifications is sent back, at our cost.
Occasionally, when we get to the end of a rubber batch, we get a small number of teats that don’t perform as well. It’s only a small number, but don’t worry, we 100% stand behind our products so you can get on with your calves, knowing we are right beside you.
