ParlorPal

When applied to dairy footbaths, cow bedding areas, calf pens and free stalls, ParlorPal lowers pH, controls ammonia, reduces odor and provides substantial cost savings for dairymen and livestock operations.

Made with the strongest dry mineral acid on the market today, ParlorPal replaces products that contain copper sulfate or weak organic acids. And since there are no heavy metal discharge concerns, ParlorPal is environmentally friendly.

ParlorPal can be used in any livestock operation (sheep, goats, cows, etc.) for hoof care and bedding management to:

  • Control ammonia. By immediately neutralizing ammonia in bedding areas, calf pens and free stalls, ParlorPal reduces the stress on the animal thereby lowering production losses from compromised animal respiratory systems.
  • Lower pH. ParlorPal lowers the pH of footbath water, bedding, manure and dirt pads far below critical levels.
  • Reduce bedding costs. By enabling the reuse of bedding, ParlorPal greatly reduces bedding costs.

ParlorPal Product Chemistry

When ParlorPal is applied it breaks down into sodium, hydrogen and sulfate.

NaHSO–4 >  Na+  +  H+  +  SO–4

The hydrogen lowers pH.

ParlorPal is a safe mineral acid that breaks down into products naturally found in the environment.

Environmental Chemistry

ParlorPal meets the guidelines of a Green ingredient. It is:

  • Biodegradable
  • Non-toxic
  • Ozone friendly

ParlorPal follows the principles of Green Chemistry as described by the EPA and the California Department of Toxic Substances Control:

  • The production process generates no waste and uses no solvents
  • The process is analyzed in real time to prevent pollution and maximizes “atom economy” by containing all of the starting materials in the final products
  • It is designed to be fully effective and has little toxicity
  • It degrades after use breaking down into innocuous substances
  • It is designed to minimize the potential for accidents including explosions, fires, and releases to the environment.

Frequently Asked Questions

How can an effective footbath help my profitability?

Economic analysis of dairy cow foot health has estimated that lameness can result in a 30% loss in milk production returns per cow. Use of ParlorPal in footbaths costs only pennies per cow.

Why does it matter what I put in my footbath?

Many of the products used in footbaths are selected from “customary practices”. Copper sulfate and zinc sulfate are not labeled for footbath application – they have become widely used because no effective alternative products were available, until now.

Why should I trust that ParlorPal is safe?

ParlorPal has been used in Western U. S. dairies for over 8 years. ParlorPal is manufactured in our plant in Walbridge, Ohio to ISO 9000 quality standards to assure composition and content. ParlorPal is classified as non-hazardous and is used in animal feeds and for human consumption. University trials have confirmed the safety of ParlorPal used as a footbath or in bedding applications.

Why use ParlorPal in place of acidified copper sulfate (ACS)?

“ACS” is a blend of copper sulfate and citric acid, a weak carbon-chain acid. The “citric acid-copper” product cannot maintain footbath pH at critical levels. Also, heavy metals (copper or zinc) can still accumulate in your lagoon.

Is ParlorPal safe for the environment?

The major component in ParlorPal is composed of sodium, hydrogen and sulfur (no heavy metals).

How does ParlorPal’s cost compare to copper sulfate?

Copper sulfate’s cost varies greatly as does availability. Depending on current pricing for copper sulfate, ParlorPal may cost only 1/3 as much.
