Premier FootCare (Liquid Zinc Sulphate)
- Zinc (Zn) - 1.43%
- Sulfur - 3.28%
- Inert - 95.29%
- Zinc Sulphate (Premier FootCare)—we rely on it in a footbath for mass treating and preventing footrot and/or foot scald. But it takes longer exposure time (10 minutes) to “work” than other options.
- Copper Sulphate—effective and quick. Corrodes metal gates (and even the nails and screws in wooden gates). Thus we use it only for topical treatments like FootCure™.
- Formaldehyde—kills bacteria rapidly. Can make hooves brittle. Poses serious health risks to human and animal skin (particularly eye tissue). So we never use it.
How to Use
For use in foot baths (#764001): Mix 1 quart per 50 gallons of water. Change mixture every 300 head (more often if the sheep's/goat's feet are caked with mud or manure).
- Eye irritant. In case of eye contact flush for 15 minutes. If irritation persists call a physician.
- Do not allow sheep or goats to drink from foot bath solutions.
- Do not allow to freeze.
