Traditional foot bathing strategies may be effective in the prevention of hoof problems, but only when the right product (Intra Hoof-fit Bath) and protocol (optimal frequency, location, refreshing, etc.) are used.
Intra Hoof-fit Spray is a unique development with a specially created ‘pearl-network’ to keep the active substances homogeneous in solution and ensures that the product sticks firmly to the hoof. Spot-spraying on the hoof guarantees long contact time at a lower dosage. Adhesion is excellent even on wet skin or hooves. Using Intra Hoof-fit Spray reduces the waste caused by runoff on the floor.
In recent years, dairy farms have been looking for alternatives to replace or expand the foot bath method. Manual low pressure or automatic sprayers have been gaining in popularity. For individual spraying sessions with a low-pressure sprayer or with Intra Spray Fit, whole-herd protocols are available. Intra Hoof-fit Spray is developed for these applications and works in every season.
For milking robots and carousel sprayers an optimized version has been developed: Intra Hoof-fit Robot.
