Intra Eco Tape, another intracare future-proof solution for sustainable hoof care, got awarded the annual Innov'Space Award at SPACE Rennes. Together with our distributing partner Synthèse Elevage in France we received this great token of recognition.
"The Innov’Space competition is what makes Space the leading event for innovation across all the livestock sectors. For over the past 25 years, these awards have been a real quality seal for the industry. They demonstrate the extent to which our sectors are efficient, innovative and always thinking ahead. It really is the benefit to the farmer that prevails in the decision to attribute an Innov’Space award. This year Intra Eco Tape, an ecological friendly bandage for farm ruminants, has been awarded."
Intracare presents the world’s most eco-friendly hoof bandage. We spent 2.5 years researching and developing an alternative bio-degradable hoof bandage Intra Eco Tape based on a natural fabric composition. The new bandage preserves its original properties such as a good stretchability, easy-tear and great adhesive properties. The product is packed ecologically without plastics and is produced without chemical coloring.
Annually, no less than 15 million synthetic hoof bandages are used worldwide on lame cows. Large amounts of these non-degradable hoof bandages, end up in our environment in waste containers, manure pits or on the fields. With Intra Eco Tape we take a huge step in our sustainability transition. Intra Eco Tape will give fewer problems for the farmer with the manure mixer, the slurry injectors and waste on the field. Besides the ecological benefits, Intra Eco Tape also offers the user greater value for money. One roll treats an average of 3 - 4 hooves while most offered products reach an average of 2- 3 hooves.
Intra Eco Tape is part of our Intra Hoof-fit Programme, which offers topline healthcare products for treatment and maintenance of hoof- and skin ailments with dairy herds, livestock and ungulates by veterinarians, hoof trimmers and (dairy) farmers. Intra Hoof-fit Gel and Intra Repiderma are established brands in the industry. Intra Eco Tape will be available globally via our extensive dealer network.
