Semi-automated footbathing system including a footbath FREE with quantity of Hoofsure Endurance*

Members of the technical team at Provita are fully aware of the fact that footbathing can often be a tedious job. Moreover, it can be neglected due to other farming commitments such as silage season or other field work. In addition, it is very difficult to ensure that the dilution rate is correct in every footbath. Studies have shown that 93% of footbaths are used incorrectly. Also the handling of chemicals can be dangerous.

Provita are currently offering a bespoke semi-automated system which can help solve the problems which come with footbathing. Initially it is supplied at cost price,the cost can be recouped by extra Hoofsure Endurance supplied for free as part of a commitment to volume purchases over time.

The system can be tailored to the farm’s specific requirements and each of the elements below can be customised to suit.

The footbath itself can be made by Moore Concrete, which is protected by a special paint to provide a longer lifespan. Or it can be made from stainless steel chequered plate, which by nature will last for many years. Both of these footbath options are sturdy, which means that cattle walking through it will be comfortable and therefore walk through it with ease.

There is an option for a modified water powered pump which will apply the Hoofsure to the footbath through an in-line water supply. This means that you will not have to handle any chemicals making it safer to use. Hoofsure Endurance will always be used at the correct dilution, and the pump can be easy adjusted to release a percentage of the product between the dilution rates of 1% to 5%. Another option is an electronic control box which can pump a set amount of water to the footbath at the press of a button.
