The liners and clusters used for milking a herd can cause the transfer of bacterial infection from one cow to another. PeraDis™ is very effective in quickly killing the viruses and bacteria that cause mastitis and other diseases.

Limiting the entry and spread of bacteria in a farm starts with simple measures like regular disinfection of the premises and using footwear baths. PeraDis™ has also been thoroughly tested for these purposes also.

Insects and rodents on dairy farms can carry and transmit disease which affect the health of a herd and lower milk yields. They can also damage equipment by gnawing on cables and lines, and the damage done may not become apparent until it’s too late.

There are also unforeseen risks – for example, 25% of fires in farm buildings are thought to start because of rodent damage, often in the form of electrical short-circuits caused by gnawing on power cables.
