    CHX PLUS CONCENTRATE MUST BE DILUTED BEFORE USE
    DO NOT MIX WITH ANYTHING BUT COOL, POTABLE WATER

    NOTE:CHX Plus Concentrate requires the proper dispenser for dilution. Consult
    your Ecolab representative for specific use instructions and recommended
    dispensing equipment.

    Dilution Parameter: A dilute solution of a 0.5% chlorhexidine teat dip will
    consist of 75% potable water and 25% CHX Plus Concentrate by volume.

    Application of Diluted CHX Plus Concentrate
    IMPORTANT:
    Do not mix CHX Plus Concentrate or diluted CHX Plus Concentrate
    with any other teat dips or other products unless specified in product use
    instructions. If transferred from this container to any other, make sure that the
    other container is thoroughly pre-cleaned and bears the proper container labeling
    for CHX Plus Concentrate.
    If product in dip cup becomes visibly dirty, discard contents and replenish with
    diluted product. Do not reuse or return any unused product to the original container.

    Before Milking: Wash teats thoroughly just prior to next milking with appropriate
    udder wash solution or pre-milking teat dip to avoid contamination of milk. Teats
    should then be dried with single-service towels. Use proper procedures for udder
    washing or pre-dipping.

    Directions for Teat Dipping
    Pre-Milk Dipping:
    Fill teat dip cup with diluted CHX Plus Concentrate. Before
    each cow is milked, dip each teat full-length into the teat dip cup containing
    diluted CHX Plus Concentrate. Wipe teats dry after dipping, using single-service
    towels to avoid contamination of milk.

    Post-Milk Dipping: Immediately after each milking, dip each teat full-length into
    the teat dip cup containing diluted CHX Plus Concentrate. Allow to air dry. Do not
    wipe. Always use fresh, diluted CHX Plus Concentrate. Do not turn cows out in
    freezing weather until teat dip is completely dry.

    Directions for Teat Spraying
    Pre-Milk Spraying:
    Before each cow is milked, spray entire teat with diluted CHX
    Plus Concentrate
    . Wipe teats after spraying using single-service towels to avoid
    contamination of milk.

    Post-Milk Spraying: Immediately after each milking, spray entire teat with diluted
    CHX Plus Concentrate. Allow to air dry. Do not wipe. Always use fresh, diluted
    CHX Plus Concentrate. Do not turn cows out in freezing weather until diluted
    CHX Plus Concentrate is completely dry.

    Expanded Usage: When freshening cows, begin dipping teats twice daily for
    about 10 days before calving.

    PRECAUTION: CHX Plus Concentrate is not intended to cure or help the healing
    of chapped or irritated teats. As with any germicide, irritation or sensitization
    may occur in sensitive animals. In case of teat irritation or chapping, have the
    condition examined and, if necessary, treated by a veterinarian.

    NOTE: Use blended CHX Plus Concentrate within six (6) months of blended date.
