cow foot bath

Copper sulfate is known to be effective in disinfecting footbaths and has shown a positive effect in reducing lesions associated with digital dermatitis.

Dairy cattle are susceptible to many hoof disorders including (but not limited to) digital dermatitis (hairy heel warts), foot rot, laminitis, sand cracks, white line disease, and sole ulcers. Each of these conditions reduces a dairy cow’s mobility and well-being and can lead to lameness. Reduction of pain associated with lameness is an important issue because lameness results in lower feed intake, lower milk production, poor reproductive performance and an increased risk of culling.

Foot Baths help prevent the spread of infectious lesions and harden claw walls to prevent noninfectious lesions. They are particularly effective for prevention of hairy heel warts.

Our Copper Qualities

Copper sulfate is known to be effective in disinfecting the foot bath and has shown a positive effect in reducing lesions associated with digital dermatitis. Old Bridge Chemicals also manufactures zinc sulfate which has been used in addition to or as an alternative to copper sulfate in a foot bath program. Copper sulfate blended with acidifiers and/ or zinc has been of high interest recently due to budgetary considerations. We offer a variety of specialty blend mixtures of these two products along with acidifiers for hoof bath uses.
