Our products

All Hoofcount products are custom built using marine grade stainless steel. Designed with simplicity in mind and using high quality engineering, we ensure that your cows gain maximum benefit whilst helping you prevent cattle lameness.



The Standard Hoofcount Footbath is up to 3m long and 800mm (internal) wide.
This bath allows 2 dips per hoof and is used mostly in smaller herds and especially off Robotic systems.



The Hoofcount Excel Bath is up to 3.7m long and 600mm (internal) wide.
This bath allows 3 dips per hoof and is especially good for much larger herds 200+ and especially on the exit of Rotary systems. This system also benefits from the strong, stainless steel side sheets which allow the chemical to remain in the bath as well as ensure that cows are unable to step on the side of the bath. 

Hoofcount Robot Footbath



All our baths are bespoke and made to fit in the space provided. However robot farms need special consideration as space may be tight. This is why we recommend our standard bath in a robot system. The amount of footbaths you will need depends on how many robots and the positioning of them. For example many head-to-head robot farmers choose to only have one footbath on the exit race of those robots.

The Hoofcount Bath is trusted and recommended by both farmers and vets as they are seeing a continuous fall in digital dermatitis on farms using the Hoofcount Automatic Footbath.

The Hoofcount bath sustains a regular treatment for preventing Digi within herds. With the use of the two chemical pumps on the bath, the farmer does not have to handle those harmful chemicals and the automation of the bath minimises labour.
