‘We always aimed to setup the footbath every Monday but it often didn’t happen. Now the hoofcount is set on automatic the foot bathing takes care of itself and it is a part of the cows daily routine.  With the hoofcount footbath we are getting on top of the lameness issues in the herd.’

Jim Parkinson, Preston  (180 cows)

Putting too many cows through the same solution meant the footbath was less effective for the cows that needed it the most.  With the hoofcount set to change the solution every 150 cows and using formalin every day we have completely eliminated digital dermatitis.

Tom Dodgson, Skipton  (420 cows)

We installed a 3 metre long hoofcount footbath in the exit race from the parlour, within 6 months we have seen a massive decrease in the number of lameness issues in the herd.  Our Digital dermatitis has disappeared which before hoofcount was having a big impact on our herd.
