For a long time, this customer struggled with hoof problems and in that connection, many various treatments have been tried in a cost-oriented manner. This resulted in an increased milk yield but also an increased number of somatic cells. Over 350,000.
In March the new herd manager was informed about a company that successfully solved the same problems as his. He was introduced to HooFoss in combination with Stalosan F and Stalosan Dry and learned about the benefits and results of this specific combination.He acted promptly and started a trial to see if these products could be the solution to his problems. The results speak for themselves:
The milk yield has increased continuously: 1.5 l per cow per day since March: 900 l more per day which generates 12.000 € per month.
- The number of somatic cells is reduced: under 180.000.
- The costs for the treatment of cow-lying areas are unchanged.
- Costs for the claw treatment are reduced to one-half and only a few lame animals.
- In 2022 the hooves of the complete herd were cut 3 times. In 2023 it was only necessary to do this 2 times. This saves 11.200 €/year.
- Vet costs are lowered.
