Abstract

Teats of 36 ewes (72 udder halves or teats) were dipped with an experimental barrier - type teat dip product to evaluate product persistency post weaning. Persistency was evaluated one to two times/day and scored positive if the teat end orifice was covered and protected. Persistency or the percentage of teats covered/protected at 36, 54, 72, 96, 132, and 156 hours was 100%, 93%, 89%, 63%, 35%, and 24% respectively. Ewes will be dipped again pre-lambing and both persistency and bacteriology (mastitis prevention) will be evaluated compared to 36 control ewes.
