Gravity-flow disinfecting hose

disinfectant stored in barrel above chute

Buckets with a small amount of disinfectant solution often don't last in narrow chutes. We elevated a 55-gallon drum above the palpation chute. Then, we attach a hose with a spray nozzle on the end. This provides enough sanitized solution for about 40 cows.
