Hygeia Winter Dip
- Dosage: 2.25 litres of dip concentrate to 900 litres of water, equivalent to 250ppm of Diazinon.
Hygeia Winter sheep dip is for the treatment and control of sheep scab and blowfly is sheep. Immerse the sheep in the bath for a minimum of one minute. Keep the sheep moving forward and crutch the head under at least once. Care should be taken to see that they do not swallow or inhale the wash. Dip baths of 2250 litres or less must be replenished every 36 sheep. Dip baths over 2250 litres are replenished every 90 sheep Replenish, as the levels fall, as directed here under. This combined with a clean bath, will give best results. If this recommendation is not observed, sheep passing through the bath at a low dip level (or a foul bath) will not be as effectively treated or protected as those passed through earlier.
To replenish the bath: a) Baths less than 2250 litres (500 gallons): after every 36 sheep dipped, add 1 litre [i.e. 4 x 250ml deliveries from the dispensing pump] into the dip tank and sufficient water to restore the bath to its original volume. b) Baths greater than 2250 litres (500 gallons). after every 90 sheep dipped , add 2.5 litres [i.e. 10 x 250ml deliveries from the dispensing pump] into the dip and sufficient water to restore the bath to its original volume. The withdrawal period for meat and offal is 35 days. Not permitted for use in lactating ewes producing milk for human consumption.
Withdrawal Periods: Animals intended for human consumption must not be slaughtered during treatment. Sheep intended for human consumption may only be slaughtered from 35 days after the last day of treatment. Not for use in ewes producing milk for human consumption.
