"This system makes treatment of digital dermatitis quick and simple. We all know if it is quick and simple then it gets done. Digital dermatitis cure rates are best if infected cows receive prolonged exposure to effective treatments. Repeated sprays are better than prolonged bandages and this system helps make this a practical reality. Combined with good foot hygiene, regular foot disinfection, heifer foot bathing and effective lame cow treatments, this approach could assist farmers in reducing digital dermatitis infection levels, could help preserve valuable antibiotics and could minimise the amount of copper used on farm"

"We have the system fitted and a trial is underway [using Intra Hoof-fit Spray Liquid]....The Quill Hoof-Spray System is very good quality, fits well into the parlour and is easy to use to target the site of that heel with a precise dose for treatment."

" In the past we have always used Formalin footbaths but could never really get on top of digital dermatitis. Since using the Quill Hoof-Spray System, we have seen outstanding results - our cases of DD have dropped dramatically - in fact it has almost gone completely.
The system is very simple and fast to use; it only takes a couple of seconds to spray the hooves. it is now part of our routine"
