Spray-on protector bonds hoof

CURE cattle hoof problems and protect against re-infection for up to six months with one application of Hoof Tect, claims supplier Ritchey Tagg.

It is designed to dry in seconds, bonding with the hoof to strengthen it and seal it against damp and bacteria – also sealing in the hoofs natural fluids.

Once applied Hoof Tect seal does not wear or wash off, but grows out gradually within about three to four months, Ritchey Tagg claims.

It advises that Hoof Tect is applied as part of a trimming routine protecting the hoof against infection and sharp objects such as thorns and stones.

Cost is about £13 for a 200ml aerosol (01765-689541).
