Long lasting lining

Mootube founders Wouter van der Velde and Paul Dilks have developed a silicone lining system specifically for the New Zealand dairy industry which lasts for approximately 4500 milkings.

The product has undergone rigorous testing, and trials which have been examined and approved by research institute AsureQuality in coordination with the Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI).

Testing and trials have also proven that silicone provides a safer, cleaner and healthier food-safe dairy product than rubber.

Rubber is known as a potential threat for transferring bacteria and leaching chemical contaminates into the milk supply due to cracks caused by factors such as extreme temperatures. However, silicone does not crack or leach chemicals.

Another key feature of the MooTube silicone liners is the soft mouthpiece which supports good teat condition and provides maximum comfort for the cow, eliminating unnecessary stress.

The liners are available from selected Farmlands stores and all CRT farm centres.
