|Keep Heat Detectors Warm. The detector should be warmed to 100 degrees F or 38 degrees C immediately prior to application. This activates the adhesive and provides instant adhesion at lower temperatures. This can be done numerous ways including putting next to your skin until they are soft and flexible. For large quantities, put the detectors in a small cooler with a hot water bottle or other heat source.|
|Site of Application. Ideal location for placement on the cow is between the hip and tail head with ESTROTECT™ evenly spaced perpendicular to the spine.|
|Brush Hair Thoroughly. Create optimal conditions for adhesion by vigorously brushing the area of application with an ESTROTECT™ Brush. Brush with the grain of the hair to remove dirt, dust and shedding molting hair. |
Note: Protect detectors from tail flicking by placing them near the top of the tail when fly counts are high. Do NOT brush hair with a steel bristle comb. Do not use stiff curry combs for brushing or cleaning.
|Clean the Hair. Clean the surface area with an ESTROTECT™ Cleaning Cloth to completely remove any remaining dirt, dust, sand or sawdust. The ESTROTECT™ Cleaning Cloth conditions the cows hair to receive the adhesive. As with brushing, wipe with the grain of the hair and fold the cleaning cloth as needed. ESTROTECT™ Cleaning Cloth remains effective as long as the cloth is still tacky to the touch.|
|Heat Detector Application. Place heat detector on the application site, press down firmly and rub into hair with bare fingers. Do not apply in rainy weather. Ideal location for placement on the cow is between the hip and tail head.|
DO NOT use ESTROTECT™ with alcohol or oil-based pour-ons or sprays as they will damage the product. Doing so will void any warranty.
