Foot and Hoof Care
Heel warts and foot rot are continuous problems for most dairies. Infection rates for heal warts have increased exponentially since their discovery in the U.S. almost 3 decades ago. Some areas in the country have incidence of hairy wart in as many as 80% of dairies. The impact of that number grows exponentially when you consider that lameness due to dairy cow foot health can lower milk production by 30% per cow. The right foot bath for hoof care can not only reduce hoof care treatment costs—costing as much as $100 per cow in treatment and production—it can minimize issues with heavy metal contamination on cropland or pastureland.
