INTRA ECO TAPE

Biodegradable hoof tape for farm ruminants

Worldwide, 15 million synthetic hoof tapes are used annually on lame cows by hoof trimmers, professional livestock farmers and veterinarians. These 15 million plastic tapes, usually 4.5 meters each and 10 cm wide (approximately 7 km2 microplastics), end up in the environment in the waste container, the manure pit or on the field.
Intracare has spent 2.5 years researching a biodegradable hoof tape (Intra Eco Tape) made from natural fabric. Future proof for planet earth. This brand new biodegradable tape has kept its positive properties such as good stretchability, easy to tear and adheres perfectly. In addition, this innovative biodegradable tape offers benefits over the synthetic one, as a bandage and compress in one. In addition, the oxygen permeability of the new tape can support skin recovery. The fact that the new tape does not cut into the skin, cannot be tied too tightly and usually falls off within 2 days are strong animal welfare values. The major advantage of Intra Eco Tape is its environmental friendliness thanks to the strong reduction of microplastics.
