Teat dipping is an important part of a mastitis control plan:

- Use good milking and environmental management procedures
- Use properly functioning milking equipment
- Treat every quarter of every cow at dry off
- Identify and treat or manage clinical cases promptly
- Cull chronically infected cows.
Teat dipping in cold weather:
- When the temperature falls below 10°f, or when wind chill is significant, special precautions should be taken to avoid chapped and frozen teats.
- Teats should be dry before turning cows out into cold weather
- When teats are dipped after milking, allow 30 seconds contact, and blot off any excess teat dip with a single service towel
- Warm the teat dip to reduce drying time
- Provide windbreaks in outside areas for cows
- Monitor fresh cows with swollen udders and teats since they are more susceptible to chapped and frozen teats.
- Do Not dilute
- Dip teats immediately after milking as a routine part of milking procedures
- Dip to thoroughly cover at least the lower one-third of the teat (preferably to the base of the udder), immediately after every milking
- Empty and clean dip cups after each milking, or during milking, if they become contaminated
- Do not pour used dip back into original container
- Keep from freezing
- Keep container closed to prevent contamination
