UDDERgold® Germicidal Barrier Teat Dip is used as an aid in reducing the spread of organisms which may cause mastitis. The gel formulation provides a protective barrier over the teat end until the next milking.

Directions For Use

Add equal volumes of UDDERgold base and activator to a clean container and mix until the color is uniform throughout. Only enough product should be mixed for one milking of the herd. The average amount of product used is less than 1/4 ounce per cow per milking. Discard any unused teat dip. Rinse dip cups and equipment with tap water after each milking.

APPLICATION: Immediately after milking, dip teats 2/3 to all their length in UDDERgold Germicidal Teat Dip. Allow to air dry. Do not wipe. Always use freshly mixed, full strength UDDERgold Germicidal Teat Dip. If product in dip cup becomes visibly dirty, discard contents and refill with fresh UDDERgold teat dip. Do not turn cows out in freezing weather until teat dip is completely dry. Prior to the next milking, pre-dip or wash teats thoroughly with a compatible pre-dip or udder wash using proper procedures.

When a cow is being dried off, dip the teats once a day for several days after last milking. Under normal conditions UDDERgold Germicidal Teat Dip will remain on teats for at least 24 hours.

Approximately 10 days prior to calving, dip teats twice daily with UDDERgold teat dip.

Note 1: If teat irritation occurs, discontinue use until irritation subsides. Consult your veterinarian and milking equipment service personnel if irritation persists.

Note 2: The gold color in the mixed product fades with time. At higher temperatures the fading is more rapid. However, this will not affect the efficacy of the product.

AVOID FREEZING: If product is exposed to freezing temperatures components must be mixed thoroughly prior to use.
