new study: Universität Zürich, Vetsuisse-Fakultät: Wood wool has a long history in the hygiene of man and beast (FREY, 2011). Its use has been known since the Middle Ages and it is nowadays often replaced by new products and has to some extent been forgotten. Wood wool was used to replace cotton wool to treat wounds in men and animals until the First World War. In the First World War the use of wood wool as substitute for cotton wool was important, since, because of the trade embargo, the Axis powers had no access to American cotton wool. The famous human gynaecologist, Semmelweis was already using the benefi ts of soft wood wool to treat women in childbirth. http://www.lindner.ch/files/content/Pressespiegel/agroclean_milking_udder%20hygiene_dairy_Lindner%20Suisse_1.pdf
