Dilution Rate: Dilution: 1:100 parts water and top-up rate is the same. Ensure that the bath is very well mixed.

Suitable for use in Organic Farming Systems: Barrier D Sheep Dip falls into the exempt category of products which use only plant oils as active ingredients, as listed in Annexe IIB (Pesticides) of Council Regulation (EEC) No 2092/91 (as amended) and can therefore be used in organic farming systems.

Meat Withdrawal: There is NO meat withdrawal period. Sheep due for slaughter can therefore be dipped at any time.

Dirty Fleeces & Foot Rot: Barrier D will not stand up to very dirty fleeces, scouring or foot rot. We suggest that you trim their back ends prior to dipping and use our other sheep products as a back up control.

Wet Weather: Care must be taken during constant wet weather conditions as Barrier D will eventually wash out of the fleece.

Ideal Conditions For Bathing: Each animal must have at least three weeks wool growth so that Barrier D can be well absorbed and hold into the fleece.
Bath the sheep in dry weather and allow them to dry off naturally.
Do not bath the sheep in wet weather conditions or if they are very dirty, heated, recently fed, tired or thirsty.

Making Up The Bath: The dipping tanks must be thoroughly cleaned. All traces of chemical treatments previously used must be removed because Barrier D is made using natural plant derived ingedients and may be rendered ineffective if it comes into contact with any chemical treatment. Care must be taken to ensure there is no bacteria build-up. Stabilisers must be considered if bathing is to be carried out over more than one day in warmer/hot conditions.

Bathing The Sheep: Thoroughly stir the bath. Follow standard dipping technique. Lower the sheep in tail end first. Ensure the sheep stay in for at least a minute, and use a crutch to duck the head under. Allow the sheep to dry naturally in dry preferably sunny conditions.

Sheep Showers: Barrier D Sheep Dip is NOT recommended for use in sheep showers. Only by total immersion for at least a minute can you ensure full coverage necessary to be effective.
