Hoofcount

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.
 

Product Benefits

All Hoofcount baths come with the same control box as standard.

This having 2 chemical pumps to allow a farmer to alternate chemical solution. The Footbath may be operated using the Cow Counter, a timer, or manually. A farmer can decide how much Chemical and which chemical to use on different days. Good footbathing practice is seen to be ‘little and often’. This being everyday, the chemical ratio in the bath may be as low as 1.5%.

We have also released another new product called the Spray wave. This new spray bar ensures the bath is washed out from top to bottom and will push any excess muck out of the bath during the washing our process. This product can also be fit to existing baths but comes as standard to new ones.

’In addition to the Footbaths, we supply the iCAM. This is a touch screen control box which is most beneficial to customers with more than one footbath on farm. By controlling all footbaths from one central box, a farmer may change setting on all the Footbaths at the same time and ensure that all the footbaths are working in exactly the same way.

This new control system allows other professionals such as Vets, Hoof-trimmers, Herdsman to input data regarding lameness. The system may then decide on the correct chemical/chemical mix to add to the bath in order to best deal with lameness. The ICaM can be purchased with a new Footbath or added to an existing Footbath.

Customer Testimonials

“We always aimed to setup the footbath every Monday but it often didn’t happen. Now the hoofcount is set on automatic the foot bathing takes care of itself and it is a part of the cows daily routine. With the hoofcount footbath we are getting on top of the lameness issues in the herd.”
Jim Parkinson, Preston (180 cows)
“Putting too many cows through the same solution meant the footbath was less effective for the cows that needed it the most. With the hoofcount set to change the solution every 150 cows and using formalin every day we have completely eliminated digital dermatitis.”

Tom Dodgson, Skipton (420 cows)
“We installed a 3 metre long hoofcount footbath in the exit race from the parlour, within 6 months we have seen a massive decrease in the number of lameness issues in the herd. Our Digital dermatitis has disappeared which before hoofcount was having a big impact on our herd.”

Dan Webster (Oakley Farming) Shrewsbury
