Hoofshield: Optimal hoof health all year round

July 27, 2020

If you are a dairy or cattle farmer, you will know the importance of including hoof bathing in your hygiene routine to avoid serious hoof conditions. Lameness in cattle is often associated with being a winter problem when conditions are particularly wet. However, muddy tracks, wet gateways, and any poached area can habour pathogens, which can trigger outbreaks of severe hoof conditions over the summer months too. Therefore, Neogen recommends hoof bathing all year round. The good news is that this does not need to be an expensive responsibility. 

During summer, Hoofshield can be used at a very economical dilution rate of 1% continuously if no hoof infection is present in the herd. Hoofshield is a powerful blend of biocides and hoof conditioners for the safe cleaning and disinfection of hooves and is a cost-effective solution to maintaining good foot health all year round.
