Healthy claws and milking performance The hoofs carry the milk! This saying, which is as simple as it is true, applies to the importance of healthy claws for an optimal milking performance of the cow. Only cows held under optimal conditions will have a maximum output of milk. Changes in feed, calving, intensive feeding for high milking capacity, changes of housing conditions etc. put pressure on the cow´s organism and especially on claws. Therefore an optimal, in other words „functional“, claw care is essential! Regularly claw care prevents the cow from serious claw damages what would have a bad effect on the milking volume for a long-time period. Professional tools, like cutting discs and special knives are needed to clean and cut the hoof, in order to see the possible damages like defects or abscesses. Kerbl´s products guarantee a professional functionality as many of them are developed together with specialists. In most of the cases the defect claw must be relieved to minimize further damage. In that way it can heal much better. So on the healthy claw, there should be fixed a (wood) block in correct size and shape. A novelty in the glue sector is the 2-component-cartridge of Technovit named 2-Bond. Please read more about this on the following pages. 1 2 Claw care: Fix blocks only on clean and prepared claws. The block must support the whole surface of the sole (sole and edges). Hollow cut: make a hollow cut with a hoof knife. This is important in order to distribute the pressure to the back part of the horn boot. 3 4 Pressure testing: test if the healthy claw can carry the whole weight. Use a special tool (hoof tester). If the cow doesn‘t react on the pressure, the claw is prepared. 5 Drying: dry the horn with handwarm air. Don‘t use hot-air dryers, they could cause damages on the leather skin. 6 Open the cartridge: fix the cartridge in the dosing gun and open it. It‘s very easy to break the sealing without using a tool! Put on the mixing tip: Press a small portion out of the cartridge in order check if both holes are opened properly. Fix the mixing tip. 7 8 Put on glue: Press out 2 to 3 portions of glue on the block or the horn (not on the hollow cut). Fix the block: The block must close up with the peak and reach to the backside until it covers 2 fingers width of the soft ball. Don‘t push but only hold the block at position. The glue layer inbetween block and horn must be minimum 3 mm thick in order to get a good adhesiveness. Don‘t move the block within the first 30 seconds until the glue is dryed. 2

Technovit-2-Bond The fast, 2-part PU adhesive for hoof treatment! Technovit-2-Bond is a quick-drying, two-part adhesive for treating hooves. Just a small amount of adhesive is all that's needed to glue wood or rubber blocks to healthy hooves in seconds in order to take the strain off diseased or damaged ones and therefore accelerate healing. The benefits at a glance: • dries within 30 seconds • bonds powerfully and permanently to wood and rubber blocks • easy to use - no mixing, no waste • odourless and safe to use, even in confined spaces The handy Technovit-2-Bond sets are available with or without dispensing guns and include the accessories for around 10 applications (depending on the size of the hoof and the operator's skill). Here's how simple it is to use: Remove the seal on the cartridge and connect up the mixing tip. Eject a small amount of adhesive. This must be done so that the two components mix as effectively as possible. Now apply a bead of adhesive onto the block. Place the block quickly onto the pre-prepared, clean and dry, healthy hoof. After around 30 seconds, the adhesive will have set, and after around 2-3 minutes, the hoof can weight-bear again. Sets include: 1 x 160 ml cartridge with 2-part adhesive 10 x mixing tips 10 x wooden blocks XL 1 x dispensing gun 16239 • • • • 16240 • • • - professional starter set with XL wooden blocks 16241 16242 16243 universal mixing tips dosing gun fits for most of similiar cartrigdes easy dosing of glue „easy to open“ ref. no. 16239 16240 16241 16242 16243 description Technovit-2-Bond starter set incl. dispensing gun for 10 applications Technovit-2-Bond set for 10 applications (no dispensing gun) Technovit-2-Bond cartridge, 160 ml Dispensing gun Mixing tips, 10 x 1 1 1/10 1/10 1/10 € 3

Therefore you can be sure that the sick claw will be perfectly spared until the wood block has worn off. • models without becoming sticky: During the modelling phase Technobase processes perfectly without peskily sticking to one’s hands. The dough remains flexible and can be shaped and processed until polymerisation. • low temperature at the end of polymerisation: the chemical reaction of mixing powder and liquid results in excessive heat. These high temperatures often damage the tissue and hurt the animal. With regard to this matter Technobase has also been improved! Therefore extra-cutaneous splinting can be performed safely and without affecting the tissue. immobilization of claws immobilization of claw tips Recommended by professional hoof carers! ref. no. 16251 16259 16257 16258 16231 description Set for 14 applications Set for 4 applications Liquid 500 ml Powder 1000 g Wooden spatula 1 1 1/144 1/70 1/100 96 216 140 € extra-cutaneous splinting transversal fixation and strengthening of bandages 4
