Aids in the prevention of new intramammary infections throughout the dry period by forming a barrier in the teat canal. Recommended to be used as part of a preventative integrated and holistic herd health approach to dry cow management and mastitis control. Adds extra protection during dry cow period by supplementing cow’s natural keratin plug.
Ergonomically-friendly, dual-tip syringe gives the flexibility to choose between either the preferred short tip or the long tip for administration.
Contains 4 grams of intramammary infusion composed of 65% bismuth subnitrate.
Directions: For use on cattle. After last milking at dry-off, clean and disinfect teats with alcohol wipes provided and infuse entire contents of one syringe into each quarter. Do not massage teat following infusion. If an antibiotic is infused into teat, teat should be re-wiped with alcohol wipes prior to infusion with ShutOut.
Removal: Do not remove by action of the milking machine. To reduce potential for ShutOut accumulation in milking machines, aggressively hand-strip ShutOut out of every quarter, 10-12 strips per quarter, before milking fresh cows. Bucket-milk fresh cows for a minimum of three milkings, if possible.
Internal teat sealants perform the function of the keratin plug:
- They form an effective seal
- They persist throughout the dry period
- They strip out easily
