knowledge in hoof health

Lameness – University of Wisconsin

Footbath – University of Wisconsin

Footbathing is an essential part of digital dermatitis control but it is often not carried out effectively. Its role is not only to prevent new infections but also the recurrence of dormant lesions. Any break in footbathing can allow DD a chance to flare up again , however it is often the first task to fall by the wayside under time pressure. The Hoofcount Excel bath takes all of the hassle out of footbathing due to the automatic emptying and refilling system, whilst the extra long design of the bath is crucial to ensure that each foot receives sufficient numbers of ‘dunks’ in the solution. With footbathing such a key component of DD control, the Hoofcount Excel provides a reliable and effective option.

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
