What is the recommended amount of Intra Eco-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. This protocol emphasizes individual care for lame cows before transitioning to a maintenance tool like the Hoof Sol Bath. After the herd is under control, the Intra Eco-Bath may be used as an alternative in a foot bath rotation. 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.
Why use Intra Eco-Bath in the footbath method?
The Intra Eco-Bath is designed to stay active for a longer time, even after pollution with manure and urine. Even after 287 cows pass through the bath, the pH is below 4.0. Additionally, we designed the Intra Bath to avoid much of the contamination by adding the grill in between the two tubs.
Intra Eco-Bath comes with pH test strips, which allow you to easily and quickly check the quality of your bath.
