There are 2 main sizes of Hoofcount bath, but as we make these ourselves, we are able to offer a bespoke service to customers and this is particularly helpful on Robot systems where space might be a high consideration. Each Hoofcount bath is designed, folded and built in our continuously growing workshops in Lancashire. As a family business we pride ourselves in this as well as our bond with farmers all across the world.
The Hoofcount baths are now being shipped to many countries across the world including Canada, Germany, Sweden and the Czech Republic. The number of baths we are making is more than doubling each year and as it does so does our business.

100% made in the UK. Watch the process from start to finish.
The process of the Hoofcount Footbath is simple and can work to however you wish. The Bath can be set to either count the cows, a timer or be on manual. Our NEW moving spray bar ensures the bath gets washed all the way down. The chemical concentration can be set to the desired percentage as well as the days you wish it to be added to the bath. The two chemical pumps also allows for two different chemicals to be used and set on different days, saving you handling chemicals.
Although we are only a small family business, we are proud to have a team full of hard working and dedicated individuals who are passionate about what we do. From accounts to service engineers, each one of us is responsible for the continued success of Hoofcount.

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.
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.
