Hoofmat is now accepted as one of the most appropriate methods of treatment of lameness in cattle. For most
successful treatment place the mat or mats (herringbone dairies will require two) in the entrance to the milking
platform. Fill the mats with the remedy of your choice, using a bucket or watering-can, then simply
top-up as required during milking. By placing the mat at the entrance to the milking area, cows have their feet
treated before standing quietly being milked. This is one of the most significant reasons why Hoofmat treatment
is so much more effective than usual footbath type treatments. After milking, simply hang Hoofmat over a wood
rail and hose off.
