Does any one know if combiotics are effective for foot rot in cows anf if so how many days do you give it. Is there a cure or treat ment that the old timers use that is more effective then antibiotics? Prevention?

yes, usually one shot of 48 hour penicillin or three day sulfur pills will straighten it out. try to keep cows out of mud or places with sharp objects. once with the dairy cows we had it so bad we had to cut out all infected areas & treat with coppertox. we finally had to make a footbath for them with water & copper sulfate. when we got it under control. we could walk them through hydrated lime every few days,
