Lockout® has a unique design that offers many advantages. Lockout®’s conception came from first-hand feedback from producers on what a teat sealant should be. As a result, our product is:
- Easy to identify - Its blue colour makes it easy to identify versus mastitis and milk
- Safe, easy & convenient to use - Thanks to its ergonomic syringe and cap, the short tip length, the absence of an air pocket, and the presence of an application indicator, Lockout® is safe, easy and convenient to use
defense against bacteria
Lockout® simulates a cow’s natural first line of defense, the keratin plug, to seal the teat against harmful bacteria by providing a sterile, antibiotic-free barrier that prevents pathogens from invading the udder through the teat end. It has 0 milk withdrawal and can be safely ingested by calves.
Using a teat sealant decreases clinical mastitis during the dry period and early lactation – and that means less need for antimicrobial use. A teat sealant is also a crucial tool in the implementation of selective dry-cow therapy.
Lockout® can be your partner in showing you if your application/removal techniques, and milking equipment cleaning protocols are optimal. If you see blue, you should review.
