How
TO USE IT

A Safe & Effective Defense Against Bacteria

Lockout™ simulates a cow’s natural first line of defense, the keratin plug, to seal the teat against harmful bacteria by providing a sterile, antibiotic-free barrier between the udder and its environment. It is compatible with conventional dry‑cow management practices, and labeled for use in dry dairy cows and replacement heifers. LOCKOUT requires no milk or pre-slaughter withdrawal. If antibiotics are used, follow recommended withdrawal times.

ADMINISTRATION

This 12-step process includes the administration of a dry off treatment followed by a teat sealant.
