Your Hygiene Team for Calving

With the cost of a case of clinical mastitis in the region of £250-£300 per cow to treat, and 50-60% of all new infections caused by environmental pathogens picked up during the dry period*, mastitis control in the dry period should not be the poor relation in your herd health programme. Cows are especially vulnerable to new infection just after drying off and again just before calving.

T-HEXXDRY® provides a physical, external barrier which can be used as part of the drying off routine, either in addition to, or instead of dry cow therapy and internal teat sealants.

T-HEXXDRY® should be applied at drying off and again 7 days prior to calving if required.

For the months of July and August (while stocks last), Progiene are running a Preparing for Calving campaign for farmers via retailers. The campaign offer means that ferms can purchase 5 x 1L T-HEXXDRY® and get 1 x 1L Free of charge.

The campaign will be communicated directly to farmers and for retailers there is point of sale material, social and digital content available.

Additionally retailers will be able to access a Preparing for Calving CPD module worth 11 AMTRA CPD points soon at
