The “Efficient hoof management” booklet aims to highlight the importance and cost associated with lameness and hoof management. We will address the effects of preventative management, diagnosis of arising problems, assessment of animal health, and the consequences, if lameness occurs.
This will provide you with a solid understanding of the anatomy of the hoof, the significance of weight bearing surfaces and the effects on cow.
This will also focus on the value of a good environment, quality feed and the importance of using tools to help you get the best from your cows. This will offer practical advice on preventative methods and perhaps give you insight into some problems you may not be unaware of, or unsure about.
