A unique hoof care programme to help eradicate lameness and poor hoof quality.

WHY CHOOSE BIOHOOF?

High yielding dairy cows, intensively fed beef cattle and replacement heifers are often under considerable metabolic, production and nutritional stress with diets often constructed to maximise performance and with no consideration for animal health.

Biohoof is a brand-new programme that tackles foot health from two angles – a Biobath foot bath specifically formulated to improve external foot health and prevent infection, together with a Biohoof nutritional premix package designed to work from within and boost the immune system, enhance skin integrity and provide an impenetrable tissue barrier to infectious agents. The Biohoof programme has also been shown to help improve milk production and fertility.

WHY IT WORKS

This two-pronged approach to foot health and lameness is a major advance in dairy management and nutrition.

The Biobath foot bath is formulated with a source of acidified copper sulphate which works to improve external foot health and specifically target Digital Dermatitis. The solution remains effective even for the last cow through the foot bath and is less irritable than other treatments for raw lesions.

The Biohoof premix package contains key sources of vitamins and micronutrients designed to improve foot health in modern intensive production systems. Formulated to work from within, it contains key ingredients such as Vitamin E, two sources of zinc and Selmet to help improve foot health and enhance skin integrity.
