LactiFence barrier post dip now available from DeLaval

PETERBOROUGH, ON (January 16, 2018) - DeLaval continues to make strides in innovative udder health technology with the launch of a NEW barrier teat dip for dairy producers in Canada. LactiFence™ is a lactic acid-based barrier dip that can help producers fight mastitis-causing pathogens and produce high quality milk. 

LactiFence lactic acid barrier dip attacks and defends against mastitis-causing bacteria

Producers can give their herd the ultimate protection against mastitis between milkings with LactiFence. The patented DeLaval barrier technology lasts up to six hours. The sharp green color shows how well each teat is covered and gives you piece of mind that LactiFence is protecting your herd against mastitis-causing pathogens.

“Udder health is essential for a healthy, productive and profitable herd,” says Yves St-Onge, DeLaval Aftermarket Solution Manager. “DeLaval is proud to add LactiFence to the lineup of solutions to aid in udder health and hygiene for our herds here in Canada.”

This post dip solution also features LactiSyn™, another patented technology from DeLaval to optimize the teat dip efficacy. It breaks down the cell membrane of bacteria, allowing lactic acid to enter the cell and kill bacteria before a mastitis infection can occur.

Christian Routier, owner of Ferme Josélito in St-Sylvestre, QC, was one of the first to try LactiFence. He noticed significant improvements to cows that previously had dry, cracked teats. “When you apply the dip, it stays there,” he says. “It has really improved the teat skin and has led to a more comfortable milking for these cows.” 

LactiFence barrier dip with lactic acid offers up to six hours of protection against pathogens that cause mastitis. Contact your local DeLaval dealer or visit to learn more.
