Constructing our Spray Race

An animal Spray race is that animal walk in a confined area (race) where a pipe system with many nozzles (usually 20 – 30) are fitted at certain intervals and at particular angles.

The animals are wetted as they walk through the length of the race with dip-wash sprays coming through the nozzles.

Why spray the animals?

Spraying livestock with parasiticides against external parasites of cattle, sheep, goats, pig, poultry: flies, ticks, mites, lice, mosquitoes, fleas. Spraying is a frequent alternative to plunge dipping of cattle and sheep in small to medium size properties, or for treating all kinds of livestock indoors.
