If product in dip cup becomes visibly dirty, discard contents and replenish with

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.
