Footrite Gel - Melvin Madrell


Melvin keeps a flock of 450 Mule ewes at Thorpe Farm in North Yorkshire.  Breeding females are put to the Texel tup, with lambs either sold as stores or finished, depending on market conditions.
 

Having tried Footrite on around a dozen sheep that were suffering from scald, Melvin comments that he found the product highly effective.  Lambs that had been noticeably lame were walking normally, within just a few days of application.

 "Footrite worked well on my sheep", he says.  "I found it very useful for treating mild cases of scald, although I will continue to use antibiotics for severely affected animals.  I would have no hesitation in using it again".
