Proper application of Bovi-Bond Block Adhesive is crucial for ensuring secure hoof block attachment and promoting the overall well-being of your cattle. Follow these step-by-step directions for effective and safe usage:
- Hoof Preparation: Begin with a clean and dry hoof. Trim and prepare the hoof surface, ensuring it is free from debris, dirt, and excess moisture.
- Selecting the Hoof Block: Choose the appropriate size and type of hoof block for the specific needs of your cattle. Ensure the hoof block is clean and dry before application.
- Mixing Bovi-Bond: Shake the Bovi-Bond container well before use. If using a dual-cartridge system, follow the instructions to ensure proper mixing of the adhesive components.
- Application of Adhesive: Apply the mixed Bovi-Bond adhesive to the cleaned hoof surface. Use a dispensing gun for precise application, ensuring even coverage.
- Attaching the Hoof Block: Immediately press the hoof block onto the adhesive-covered hoof surface. Hold it in place for a few seconds to allow the adhesive to begin bonding.
- Curing Time: Bovi-Bond features a fast-curing formula. Allow sufficient time for the adhesive to cure and bond securely with the hoof. Follow the product's recommended curing time guidelines.
- Post-Application Inspection: After the adhesive has cured, inspect the attachment to ensure a secure bond between the hoof block and the hoof. Ensure there are no gaps or irregularities.
- Monitoring and Maintenance: Monitor the cattle's movement and behavior post-application. Regularly check the hoof block attachment for any signs of loosening or issues. Address any concerns promptly.
- Safety Considerations: Take necessary safety precautions during application, including proper restraint of the cattle to minimize stress on both the animals and handlers.
- Storage Guidelines: Store the Bovi-Bond container in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight. Ensure the lid is securely closed to prevent premature curing.
- Follow all safety guidelines provided by the manufacturer. Avoid direct contact with skin or eyes. In case of contact, wash affected areas with water. Use in a well-ventilated area.
