  • Robustly made from galvanised steel with thick polypropylene bristles
  • Very low maintenance with easily replaceable bristles
  • Easy to mount
  • Safe – a sensor switches the brush off if the tail gets caught
  • Shaped and free to move at all angles, scratching all over of the cow’s body
  • Suitable for use indoors by cows free to move around

This swinging cow brush automatically rotates when pushed by the cow. It rotates in all directions and almost every angle to scratch most of the body and particularly the head and rump. The brush running time can be set from10 to 300 seconds.

High Quality, Reliable and Low Maintenance

The Happy Cow automatic swinging cow brush is made by Kerbl in Germany. It features:

  • Continuous lubrication of the gear over the machine’s entire lifetime
  • Intelligent electronics for fault-free and low-maintenance operation
  • Control with clearly visible display, IP55 rated against water and dust ingress
  • High quality bristles, replacement brushes available
  • Hot dip galvanised steel parts

Safe, Easy to Install

These vertical swinging cow brushes are easy to assemble, come with comprehensive operation instructions and are virtually maintenance free. The brush rotates in the opposite direction each time it is activated to ensure even wear of the brushes.

The brush has a sensor which stops it rotating if it meets any resistance, to keep the animals safe and prevent tail hair from getting pulled in.

Automatic electric cow brushes need to be plugged into 16 amp socket with a 16 amp waterproof plug (not supplied) and so are only suitable when cows are housed indoors.

Allow one brush for every 50 to 60 cows.

    I bought a swinging cow brush from you a good few years ago – we have had no issues with it, the cows like it and it is well-made. I am ordering another one on the countryside grant this year.
