Calf Safe – Organic disinfectant

Cafe Safe Organic Disinfectant

Non-rinse organic disinfectant – safe to use without shifting calves.

KEEP YOUR CALVES SAFE?

Calf-Safe joins the important range of safe and meaningful antibacterial sanitiser/disinfectants to which Daviesway DASCO has long been committed.

It is a natural Australian-made biocide derived from 100% botanical extract, which is NASAA certified input for organic production.

Calf-Safe is rated to the strength of a hospital-grade disinfectant, and it is safe to use every day while calves remain in the pens. It is also a non-rinse sanitiser, so continues to have a bactericidal and fungicidal impact on hard surfaces until the loading exceeds the volume of Calf-Safe present.

It’s also safe to use on calf teats between groups, to spray on scouring calves to stop them re-ingesting bacteria, and to apply to all surfaces in the pen (and on calf feeders) to stop cross-contamination.

TWO OTHER MUST-HAVES FOR YOUR CALF SHED SET-UP

STALOSAN® F

Powerful organic powder for sanitising and drying bedding, with a low natural pH (below 4) that binds more than 70% ammonia and destroys/controls pathogens. Also ideal for sanitising boots between pens.

She recommends using Stalosan® F and Calf-Safe in unison for bedding and hard surfaces in the calf shed for other day-to-day sanitising. Both can be used while calves are in the pen, but they are both also an effective post or pre-season clean.

Recommended best-practice for calf-shed hygiene set-up

  • Remove old bedding from the calves’ sleeping area.
  • Handwash solid walls, hay and grain feeders with Germidet (between groups of calves coming in).
  • Dust Stalosan® F on the floor (spread at 50g/m2 under bedding, using a hand-held kitchen sieve to sprinkle lightly). Note: Apply Stalosan® F weekly (and safely spot-treat bedding) for maintenance. It can be safely applied on the top of bedding.
  • Maintain bedding depth at 15cm.
  • Spray all the walls, feeders (including misting the whole pen area) with Calf-Safe.
  • Safe daily disinfectant for calf feeders, teats, walls, calves and hard surfaces in pens.

DETERGENT AND GERMICIDAL DISINFECTANT

GERMIDET

Cost-effective (non-corrosive and biodegradable) disinfectant that is as versatile, cleaning animal housing as it is being used as a general farm disinfectant. It makes it as ideal for washing calf coats as it is for giving calf feeders a once-a-week germicidal wash-down.
