Premier FootCare (Liquid Zinc Sulphate)
Concentrated liquid zinc sulphate. Specially formulated for the prevention and treatment of footrot and foot scald in sheep and goats.
For use as a topical spray, pour-on or in Premier's SureFoot™ Foot Bath.
Zinc Sulphate vs Copper Sulphate vs Formaldehyde?
- Zinc Sulphate (Premier FootCare or Hoof 1-2-3)—we rely on it in a Premier SureFoot™ Foot Bath 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).
- Zinc (Zn) 1.43%
- Sulfur 3.28%
- Inert 95.29%
How to Use
For use in Premier SureFoot™ Foot Bath: 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).

We have maintained a small flock of sheep (120 ewes) for more than fifteen years, and we use our foot-bath set-up every summer. Typically we run our flock and all of the lambs born during May and June through the foot-bath twice a summer, and three times, some years. Using Premier FootCare Concentrate in the foot-bath makes a noticeable, positive difference every year, and we think it is easy to work with and reasonably priced.

It didn’t work on my sheep, they still have sore feet, it’s not foot rot either.

Works well for minor to moderate foot rot alone. In bad cases, use this in conjunction with an antibiotic and it really knocks it down.

One of my pigmy goats had an infection on his rear hoof, after trying every topical spray and gimmick to clear this nasty infection up, I tried Premier FootCare (Zinc Sulfate) and the infection has started to dramatically clear up within three days.

We are very pleased with this product. We have used it several times and notice results within a day or two.
