Footbaths

Hoofbond Footbaths

Option 1 is a complete unit with replaceable mattress

Hoofbond footbaths are specially designed for New Zealand Dairy Farms to limit lameness, help prevent hoof rot, protect against heel erosion and promote resistance to bacterial infection.

The HOOFBOND black mattress is made from 100% recycled rubber. The hard wearing rubber compound helps to prevent excessive splashing, is porous so that once charged with approximately 45-50 litres of solution it then permeates through the surface soaking the hoof in the liquid. While disinfecting it is also hardening the horn and toughens the skin in the vital areas. This drying effect on the hoof makes the hooves less susceptible to bacterial infection.

The base of the unit is a self supporting 2150 x 960 x 58mm tray that is made in NZ from recyclable polyethylene. The tray is heavy walled and is a one piece, seamless waterproof tray which is UV resistant. This strong, tough and reliable tray will never rust or rot.

The high friction of the rubber surface helps to spread the toes, allowing superior penetration of the fluid into the inner surfaces of each cleat—acting as a preventative cure where possible bacteria can inflame the soft tissues.
The easy to wash down surface minimizes contamination of the solution, which means it will stay concentrated for longer and reduces the frequency of the recharge helping to reduce the overall cost.

Honeycomb Matting – Option 2 for Footbaths

Custom made to suit, Honeycomb matting is ideal for footbaths as the matting can remain submerged for the life of the mat and can be filled with copper sulphate or bluestone solutions.  This matting acts as a non slip surface but does not prevent splashing of liquid.

It is also ideal for footbaths for cows as it removes stones from the hooves before entering the yards, reducing sore feet and lameness.
