The Smart Bio Block
The 100% biodegradable and compostable Smart Block – the Bio Block. With a universal design – no left and right to worry about. Like all Smart Blocks the Bio Block is manure pump friendly and comes in two sizes – large and small. The Bio Block is dye free and will rot down in your paddock to harmless constituents. Add Bio Blocks to part of your green strategy on farm.
The Bio Block features a unique patent pending double slope design which gives the cow the maximum lift on her injury with the use of a thinner block. It gives almost 20% more lift on the ulcer and white line zones than a conventional .075 block. The double slope gives the cow a better gait while walking on a block – she will put the block more directly under her hock or knee, which gives her more stability and gives the injury more rest due to less stretching of the cells while walking, leading to faster healing. Bio Block offers 60% more lift than conventional competitors and a 17% lift improvement over the original Smart Block.
Pricing is per each block – discounts may apply for multiple units – just order your required number and your discount will be displayed.
Smart Blocks are a pliable resin based design providing greater comfort for your herd. They are quicker and easier to fit, with longer retention and are contoured to the anatomy of the hoof. Smart Blocks are similarly priced to conventional wooden blocks. Smart Blocks use less glue and keep glue away from the softer parts of the hoof to minimise irritation and pain. Gippsland Veterinary Group are pleased to be the exclusive Australia and New Zealand distributor of Smart Blocks – the smarter hoof block.
