Don't think you can go far wrong by following the advice of the EBLEX publications. This one has advice on foot conditions; http://www.eblex.org.uk/wp/wp-content/uploads/2013/07/brp_l_sheepSBRP_Manual_7_reducing_lameness170713.pdf

On a workshop I attended a couple of years ago, it was recommended to place lime around troughs which will help in preventing infection, especially where poaching of the ground is a risk. Alternatives include the use of gravel around troughs.
Human beings, who are almost unique in having the ability to learn from the experience of others, are also remarkable for their apparent disinclination to do so.  ~Douglas Adams
