Ecohoof Germicide : Advice for new users
In order to ‘hit’ any problems hard it is recommended that an initial 20 day programme is followed.
Follow your normal routine to ensure footbath area is clean that a pre-wash bath of water is in place
Using 1 scoop (350gms) to 100ltrs water in the footbath, walk the animals through as normal. Repeat at each milking for 20 days. Discard the footbath after 2 sessions or if heavily contaminated
Treat any individual case that require trimming prior to footbathing and dispose of trimmings where they can’t cause further infection
Note: Cross contamination can come from trimming tools, particularly farm to farm via professional hoof trimmers. Disinfect all tools prior to, and after, use.
After the 20 day programme, footbath regularly – at least 3 times per week
Note: Ecohoof Germicide is a powerful disinfectant and can be used to wash down parlour walls and floor, cubicles and utensils. Use in same dilution
Tip: When making up Ecohoof Germicide solution for footbathing or cleaning, put some into a small spray bottle to use on individual cows feet.
