Description

Where is there a Mobile Sheep Shower for Sale?

As an experienced Sheep Farmer and Electrician, Mark Kelly built the first Dipfast Sheep Shower 8 years ago using an old Oil Tank and material he found on his farm. Finding the process of dipping his sheep becoming even more expensive and laborious, he was determined to figure out a way to do it safer, easier and quicker.

Mark’s prototype was so successful with treating his own flock of sheep the neighbouring farmers were approaching him asking to treat their sheep.

Fast forward to 2017, Mark and his three sons, Aidan, Patrick and Colm are finally ready to release their Dipfast Mobile Sheep shower for sale after a 3 year R&D process. Working closely with Harlequin MFG, the final product is the first of its kind, a tried and tested fully enclosed sheep showering system.

How the Sheep Shower works

  1. Sheep enter the unit via the ramp.
  2. The operator closes the entrance door using the pulley system.
  3. The Sheep are sprayed by 18 jets with a total flow rate of 140 litres per minute at 2 bar pressure.
  4. After dripping off, the operator opens the exit door using the pulley system.
  5. The Sheep exit the Dipfast via the ramp.

DipFast Independent Research

The DipFast product was independently submitted to the Agri-Food and Biosciences Institute (AFBI) for testing to discover the effectiveness of the product. AFBI produced a report with the key points detailed below.

Testing a new method to treat and control ectoparasites in sheep using a mobile showering unit

“DipFast is an effective and safe apparatus causing minimal stress to sheep and requiring considerably less product than traditional treatment methods. Operators have little exposure to the product, with sheep able to receive full fleece saturation after only a short time, and with the product consistently saturating the fleece and the inside of the ewe’s ears.” – AFBI Research Report, August 2016
