With the current wet and warm weather providing perfect conditions for flies to breed leading to increased cases of summer mastitis, dairy chemical hygiene specialists, Agroserve, are urging farmers to act now and protect their cows against flies with its new Hexaklene R teat care product.
Available to use as a dip or spray, Hexaklene R, from Agroserve (part of the GEA Farm Technologies umbrella), can repel flies for up to six hours, making it one of the most effective summer teat dips available.
“Summer mastitis, an acute disease of the non-lactating mammary gland, affects farmers year on year with damaging consequences to their herd” says Agroserve Farm Services Manager, Melanie Heath. “The ability to fend off flies for such a long period of time makes Hexaklene R a must have part of a post milking routine – especially when looking for maximum protection against flies and excellent teat condition.”
