IO-TEC Indications

IO-TEC is a pre- and post-milking antiseptic teat solution to be used as an aid in reducing the spread of organisms which may cause mastitis in dairy cattle.

Directions For Use

PRE-MILKING: Use at full strength. Do not dilute.

Before milking, apply IO-TEC to each teat, ensuring complete coverage of all teats with the solution. After 15 to 30 seconds, dry each teat thoroughly. If the udder and teats are heavily soiled, clean with an antiseptic udder wash and dry thoroughly before application of IO-TEC.

POST-MILKING: Use at full strength. Do not dilute.

Apply IO-TEC to each teat immediately after milking. Ensure that the solution thoroughly covers the entire surface of all teats. Allow teats to dry. Do not wipe. If outside temperature is below 0°C, allow to air dry on the teats before turning cows out to cold weather to prevent freezing. When a cow is being dried off, continue the application of IOTEC to all teats once daily for 1 to 2 weeks as required after the last milking. With freshening cows, resume application of IO-TEC to all teats twice daily for 7 to 10 days before calving.

A fresh solution should always be used at each milking. The application equipment should be cleaned and rinsed properly after each milking session or when the solution becomes contaminated. Do not pour remaining solution back into the original container. Keep container closed to prevent contamination of the product.

Cautions: For external use only. If cow’s teats are sore, irritated or chapped, consult a veterinarian before starting or continuing to use antiseptic teat solution.

Storage Conditions: Store between 2°C and 30°C. Keep from freezing. Store in a cool, dry, clean area. Keep away from direct sunlight and heat to avoid deterioration. Keep container tightly closed.
