Advanced barrier film gives better germicidal activity

Killing power of the dried barrier film shows a major improvement for UDDERgold 5-Star.




UDDERgold 5-Star represents a major advancement in barrier film technology with a significant improvement in its germicidal properties. It now has an advanced, superior germicidal system to kill mastitis-causing organisms, especially those from the environment-all without losing the ability to seal teat ends between milkings.

Alcide's ASC germicidal system is very powerful yet selective

UDDERgold 5-Star showed a significant reduction in new infections compared to the negative control.




  • It kills a broad spectrum of mastitis-causing microorganisms quickly by oxidative attack. Bacteria-including mycobacterium-fungi and viruses have all been shown to be susceptible to Alcide's ASC chemistry.
  • It is selective in what it attacks, so it is unaffected by the presence of an organic load, such as milk.

Protection against new infections

  • One University test* reported a 96 percent reduction (P,0.01) in new S. aureus infections compared to a negative control when their herd experienced a natural outbreak of S. aureus

Improved color retention

  • UDDERgold 5-Star retains its color long after mixing, so you'll know you're getting the coverage you need
  • Unlike other teat dips, colorants used in UDDERgold 5-Star have been FDA approved
