Footbath solution is formalin-free

INHIBIT organisms which cause lameness, strengthen hoof condition, and disinfect livestock housing with Hoofmaster, says Kit Speakman Marketing.

The footbath solution is a safe and natural alternative to formalin containing organic acids, zinc sulphate, copper sulphate and selected herbs, and is biodegradable.

KSM recommends using a 2% solution to footbath cows twice-a-day for a three day dipping programme, which should be repeated every 14 days.

Hoofmaster is also suitable to spot treat cows feet and to disinfect housing when diluted in a back-pack sprayer, it adds.

It costs £99 for 25 litres, including mainland UK delivery (01376-515164, fax 01376-515165).
