Cow Magnets are popular with dairy farmers and veterinarians to help prevent Hardware Disease in their cattle.
How does it work?
Cow magnets are widely used by ranchers and dairy farmers to help prevent Hardware Disease in their cattle.
While grazing, cows eat everything from grass and dirt to nails, staples and bits of bailing wire (referred to as tramp iron).
Tramp iron tends to lodge in the honeycombed walls of the recticulum, threatening the surrounding vital organs and causing irritation and inflammation, known as Hardware Disease.
The cow loses her appetite and decreases her milk output (dairy cows), or her ability to gain weight (feeder stock). Cow magnets help prevent this disease by attracting stray metal from the folds and crevices of the rumen and recticulum.
One magnet works for the life of the cow!
There are several kinds of cow magnets:
A favorite of Dairymen and Vets for over 30 years! This is the standard cast Alnico 5 cow magnet with bright, metal finish. It is non-toxic and non-corrosive in use. Each measures 12.7 dia. X 76.2mm long.
There are two kinds of Ceramic Cow Magnets, One is rectangular cow magnet which is made of Ceramic 5 (Strontium Ferrite) magnet material. Its special magnetization pattern causes nails and other sharp metal objects line up along the length of the magnet where they are no longer a danger to the cow. The FDA-approved epoxy coating is gentle on the cow and helps protect the magnet from chipping. Rounded corners ensure safe and easy passage to the recticulum. Measures 12.7 x 19.05 x 69.85 mm long
Another is rod cow magnet, Its durable structure boasts plated, solid steel end caps for corrosion prevention and a solid steel connector rod through the core to reduce breakage in shipping and handling. No plastic parts involved, It has rounder ends and is slightly heavier than the original heavy duty cow magnet. These qualities make it easier for the magnet to travel to the stomach and stay there. Measures: D12.7x85mm
NdFeB Cow Magnet is made from NdFeB magnet, and covered by stainless steel, it is bright, and the pull is strong. Measures: D12.7x76.2mm. They are also one of the most favorite shapes of magnet for science experiments. Students use the cow magnet to make electric generators, observe magnetic lines and perform other magnet related experiments.
