Can can stamp out foot disease

PREVENT and treat foot-rot, white line disease and disinfect cattle and sheep feet economically with Claw Care, says supplier Eggs-Port.

Claw Care is said to be non-aggressive and easy to use, containing copper and zinc sulphates, but with a low pH making almost all copper and zinc available in the ion form. Eggs-Port recommends diluting one litre of Claw Care in 200 litres of water for routine prevention and two litres in 200 litres for intensive foot care.

A five-litre can, to treat 200-300 cows or 400-500 sheep, costs £23 plus delivery (01434-600602, fax 01434-600613).
