A naturally derived broad spectrum antimicrobial teat dip and spray, which leaves the skin soft and nourished.
EnviroCare Teat harnesses the broad ranging antibacterial properties of naturally occurring lactic acid to reduce the presence of E. coli, Staph aureus and Strep uberis bacteria on teat ends.
To ensure the activity is maintained across a range of conditions experienced on dairy farms, the solution is buffered to a specific pH range where the lactic acid is most active.
Available in 200litre drums and 1000 litre IBCs
EnviroCare Teat is organically certified by OF&G and can be washed into slurry stores without disrupting the bacterial populations, in keeping with the EnviroSystems BioCircle™.

Buffered to maintain the optimum pH for activity
Moisturising properties to keep skin soft
Increased viscosity to ensure it remains on the teat end
Ready to use, for both pre and post milking
”Since using EnviroCare Teat there has been good condition on the teats and no cracking. As we're on robots, and not as many [cows] are going outside, they lie down straight after milking, so it's important to get a spray on before the teats close. EnviroCare Teat spray works well, the blue colour is easy to see and it sticks to the teats well.Martin WannopDairy Farmer, Cumbria
”We used to be on iodine and lactic acid based teat dips, but with the sand bedding it was always quite rough on the teats. We introduced EnviroCare Teat last winter as a post dip through the sprayers. Since then the teat condition has improved and the cows are noticeably more comfortable when milking.Phil BloweyDairy farmer based in Devon
”Moving to EnviroCare Teat was a big change from iodine teat dips which we'd always used in the past. We use two teat cups of EnviroCare Teat, one for pre-dip and one for post-dip. Previously, we’d occasionally have damaged teats and needed to use udder cream, but since the change we haven’t needed to as the teat condition is so good.Roger RidgwayOrganic dairy farmer, Pembrokeshire
”I have now used EnviroCare teat for 10 months and the cell counts are lower than ever before, the teats are in the best condition I have ever seen and the milking speed has increased as a resultRichard InfieldDairy farmer based in Bedfordshire
Teat care excellence
EnviroCare Teat harnesses the broad ranging antibacterial properties of naturally occurring lactic acid to reduce the presence of E. coli, Staph aureus and Strep uberis bacteria on teat ends. To ensure the activity is maintained across a range of conditions experienced on dairy farms, the solution is buffered to a specific pH range where the lactic acid is most active.
EnviroCare Teat also contains natural surfactants which help to dissolve and remove dirt, oils and milk remnants from the teat, ensuring a clean and hygienic teat end.
Kind to skin
EnviroCare is kind on the skin, in part from the carefully selected pH balance, and also through the addition of emollients and humectants. These additions draw moisture to the surface of the skin, trapping it under the layer formed as it dries, and preventing the skin from drying out and cracking.
The increased viscosity ensures the product remains on the teat end after application, without leaving a sticky residue, and the dark blue colouring makes ensuring a full and even coverage is easy to achieve.
