    Abstract

    Comparison of two walk-through footbaths on the prevalence of digital dermatitis and interdigital dermatitis on a commercial dairy farm This field trial was designed to evaluate the e.f with copper chelate or formalin walk-through fbothaths on the prevalence of digitalis dermatitis and interdigital dermatitis on a dairy farm. Although there was no difference in effect between the two types of footbath, the probability, that inter digital dermatitis improved or remained stable was lower with the copper chelate footbath than with the formalin footbath.
