Prevention of facial eczema
Treatment and prevention of foot-rot and foot scald. Treatment and prevention of dermatophilosis (mycotic dermatitis or lumpy wool)
Use as a dietary zinc supplement
Facial Eczema Prevention: Zinc Sulphate Mono is added to the drinking water at such a rate as to deliver to the animals 5.5 grams per 100kg live-weight each day, or alternatively at a rate of 0.8g per litre drinking water. It can be administered directly into the trough, into the supply tank or through an in-line dispenser.
Foot-rot and scald: Make up a 6.5% solution (1kg Zinc Sulphate Mono per 10 litres) and stand animals in this solution as required.
Dermatophilosis: Animals can be dipped into the solution, or the solution applied by spraying. For prevention, make a 0.5% solution (500g Zinc Sulphate Mono per 100 litres). For treatment make a 1% solution (1kg Zinc Sulphate Mono per 100 litres of water).
Dietary Zinc Supplement: Usually used at low rates, eg 0.5-1g/cow/day. It is usually administered through the drinking water but can be orally drenched as long as rates do not go above 1.2g/cow/day. It can be administered directly into the trough, into the supply tank or through an in-line dispenser.
• Zinc Sulphate Mono is fully soluble in water so can be administered into the drinking water through an in-line dispenser and can be mixed with any other oral nutritional animal health products except chlorides. It is not recommended that high doses (eg for facial eczema prevention) be administered by direct oral drenching due to the very high likelihood of severe stomach irritation.
