Stalosan F is proven to be effective against many problems, both those caused by bacteria and those induced by certain parasites. Examples include mastitis, elevated cell numbers, foul in the foot, diarrhoea and excessive concentration of ammonia in the accommodation area.
For cattle, spread Stalosan F in areas where the animals lie down, particularly under the udder and in damp areas. In penned and tethered stalling, spread the product at the back of the stall in particular, around the feeding trough and dung channel, etc. In deep-bedding housing, spread directly on the existing layer of bedding, particularly in the animals’ lying areas. Spread throughout the entire area in calf stalls.
The straw stays fresh longer when using Stalosan F, which typically reduces straw consumption by 10–15%. In addition, the number of flies is considerably reduced when using Stalosan F at least once a week. Also look for improvements in the yield from soil fertilized with manure from animal housing where Stalosan F is consistently used.

Applied daily using 50-100 g/m2 (1-2 pound per 100 sq. feet) as evenly as possible underneath the udder area/at the rear of the stall. Stalosan F can be mixed with the bedding in the bedding machine before spreading the bedding if sufficiently even distribution of the product can be achieved. If the product is unevenly distributed, it is recommended to spread Stalosan F manually. Uneven spreading of Stalosan F in lying areas will reduce its effect. For cows on deep bedding, apply Stalosan F on top of the bedding in doses corresponding to approx. 100 g/m2 (2 pound per 100 sq. feet) daily or as often as possible.
Calf stalls/individual stalls/calf huts
Apply 100 g/m2 (2 pound per 100 sq. feet) once weekly, as evenly as possible on top of the bedding. Apply additional Stalosan F, preferably daily, in areas with visible dung/diarrhoea to reduce the risk of infection. It is preferable to throw the product against the bedding/fittings to generate dust that ensures an effective distribution.
Shared stalls/bigger calves over three months old
For optimal protection against infection from harmful environmental bacteria, treat the bedding mat once a week. Throwing the product against bedding and fittings enhances the effective area of the product.
