The footbath can be placed at the exit of the milking parlour or robot, in out-of-parlour feeders or in a cubicle with a molassed mineral block/bucket for enticement.

Trials conducted by Olmix Group have shown a 38% decrease in new DD lesions and a 1.2kg increase in milk production. In terms of the increased milk production, research alone has concluded that the product provides a 4:1 (ROI). Mistral is also certified for organic farming.
