The options available to dairy farmers to treat their herd for the prevention and control of hoof bacterial infections have historically been few. The negative consequences of copper sulfate and formalin are known, yet they continue to be the most widely employed foot bath chemical options. Copper can and will accumulate in soils to the point of causing crop toxicity effects in row and forage crops. Formalin is recognized as a known carcinogen and future use is in question because of its health risk to farm employees. So is there a safe and effective footbath treatment alternative that does not have negative consequences? Fortunately the answer is “yes.”
Recent research conducted at South Dakota State University demonstrated that Hoof-Zink E-Z Liquid has been proven to effectively control bacteria that cause foot rot and hairy heel warts. These are the most common pathogens that cause cattle lameness. Independent university tests demonstrated the effectiveness of Hoof-Zink E-Z Liquid . Further, field test trials confirmed the effectiveness of Hoof-Zink E-Z Liquid at dairy farms.
