Cow Magnets

Cow magnets are meant to protect the cow from hardware diseases which it might incur while grazing. Cows while grazing also graze apart from grass, nails and tramp irons which effects their vital body organ. This effect cows health adversely. The tramp iron lodges itself in honeycombed wall and cause irritation and infllation. This not only effects the weight of the cows but also their appetite thereby effecting their milk producing capacity. Cow magnets help in preventing this disease by attracting stray metal from the folds and crevices of the rumen and reticulum. Because of this property cow magnets are very popular among the dairy farmers.

There are two types of cow magnets that are widely used:
  • Alnico Cow Magnets
    Alnico cow magnets are made primarily from Aluminum, Nickel and Cobalt. They may also contain copper, iron and sometimes titanium.

  • Ceramic Cow Magnets
    The ceramic cow magnets have special magnetization pattern which cause nails and other sharp metal objects to line up along the length of the magnet thereby preventing the cow from the danger.
