Hygiene as a contributor to longevity

Important ways to improve longevity

A long duration of use and high milk yields lay the foundations for economically viable dairy farming. The well-being of animals must be ensured in order to fully exploit the genetic potential of cattle.

Dairy cow hygiene longevity Along with fertility problems, hoof problems and udder disorders are some of the most frequently encountered issues in dairy herds today. Frequent clearing of gangways (at least twice a day) is a proven way of minimising damp and reducing the risk of infection on walking and lying surfaces in sheds. To maintain hoof and udder health, it is sensible to spread hygiene lime on walking and lying surfaces every day and apply a teat disinfectant after milking using products from the Desintec Desintec range.
