External Teatsealer during drying mode.
- Apply at the time of drying and 7-10 days before calving (on clean, dry weaning, for good adhesion first wiping with alcohol wipe)
- Formulated on a polymer basis it forms a breathable layer.
- The protective layer is a barrier against bacteria and therefore closes the teat for intruders.
- Auxilium® Dry has a clear colour which makes it very visible that the teat is dimmed and protected.
Mastitis prevention during drying mode
Study shows that the drying period is a very risky period for new infections. Because the cow is no longer milked, it is also no longer cleaned and disinfected, and this together with any milkout and insufficient hygienic working during the drying mode make the closing holes extra vulnerable to the bacteria.
It turns out that 50 of all new infections originate in the drying mode. More than 95 will be held in the first and last week of the drying position.
For the best protection, the bacteria present, both internally and externally, must be killed and other bacteria from the outside should be blocked.
Why use a Teatsealer?
In many cows, the end hole is not sufficiently closed until 7 to 10 days after drying. Auxilium® Dry works on a polymer basis and kills the bacteria present on the teat when the sealer is applied. Then it forms a strong barrier that will hold 4 to 7 days so that new bacteria from the environment cannot penetrate into the nipple canal.
Auxilium® Dry is available in packs of 1 litre. This allows approximately 75 treatments to be performed.
