AgroChem, Inc. has been awarded a patent in Canada for its HealMax® hoof care product, according to AgroChem Director Rob DeMarco.
HealMax is a biodegradable, topical antiseptic available in a spray, foam or footbath concentrate that works without heavy metals, acids or formaldehyde. According to DeMarco, it is best suited for dairy producers who can't or don't want to use formaldehyde because of health and safety risks. HealMax may also be appropriate for producers looking to reduce copper loading on land, or who want a safer footbath that is highly effective.
