TWO:

"TREAT

WITH

FOR USE WHEN THERE IS A HIGH INCIDENCE OF FOOTROT

OR WHEN IMMEDIATE PARING IS NOT POSSIBLE.

1. Ensurefeet are clean prior to the footbath.

2. Treat all sheep as per steps 3-5 on the

DIRECTIONS

FOR USE.

NOTE: In this option the sheep are treated without initial

paring.

This delay in paring will reduce the severity of the paring on the

majority of sheep. Repeatfootbathing in two weeks (12

16 days).

3. On the second or subsequent treatment pare all feet to normal

conformation as per steps 2-5 on the

DIRECTIONS

FOR USE.

Repeatthe footbathing at intervals of every two weeks (12-16

days) for as long as the spread period continues.

4.When spread has ceased or pastures have dried off,

inspect

sheep,

with paring as necessary to identifythose sheep which

have or are likely to have footrot

(eg.

mishappen

feet).

Ideallythese

sheep should be

However

if a re
