Often, particularly in the cowshed, a temporary mark is ideal. One that will only last half an hour or so. Foam Mark aerosol is the answer. It leaves a big bright mark, almost impossible to miss at the drafting gate. The foam will stay on the flank or the back. After about 30 minutes it dissolves away, so there is no confusion at the next milking. Lots of other stock marking uses. Water-based product. Pocket-size 265ml net contents. Available pink only.

When marking treated cows, a very reliable system needs to be used. One of the best places to mark is right on the udder, both sides, or rear. The new FIL Udder Mark is non-irritant and will stay visible for 8 days. It will
always be very visible for the duration of the withholding period. We suggest using a red mark when a cow is first treated, then spray over with green when she is clear. No-block nozzle will spray at any angle. Net contents 500ml.
