1. Maintains Good Hoof Condition: The Hoof-Sol Bath is specifically formulated to keep cow hooves in excellent condition. It contains conditioning ingredients that nourish and strengthen the claws, ensuring the overall health and stability of the hooves.
2. Sting-Free and Stress-Free: Unlike traditional foot baths, the Hoof-Sol Bath is gentle on the hooves and does not cause any discomfort or stinging sensation to the cows. This helps minimize stress, ensuring a calm and relaxed bathing experience for your animals.
3. Extended Contact Time: With its non-corrosive and non-hazardous nature, the Hoof-Sol Bath is safe to use in front of the milking parlour.

What is the recommended amount of Hoof-Sol Bath concentrate to use in a foot bath?
To properly disinfect cow hooves, it’s recommended to use a footbath solution with a 5% concentration of product in water. The most common footbath volume is around 150 litres, which should be sufficient for 250 to 300 cow passes, and this size bath uses 7.5 litres of product. When administering the footbath, make sure the hooves are fully submerged, covering the hairline and the dewclaws, which is approximately 12-15 cm.
What are the directions for the use of the Hoof-Sol Bath?
To ensure optimal results and hoof health, it is recommended to follow the Intra Protocol when using the Hoof-Sol Bath. This protocol emphasizes individual care for lame cows before transitioning to a maintenance tool like the Hoof-Sol Bath. This approach has been widely proven and implemented worldwide. For herds that are transitioning from harsh chemicals, it is advised to use the Hoof-Sol Bath for two consecutive days per week for a duration of one month. Following this initial period, the frequency can be reduced to one day per week for ongoing maintenance. By adhering to this protocol, you can effectively support the well-being of your cows’ hooves and achieve long-term hoof health.
