Bovine Foot Trimming Course - 10th March 2022
Yesterday saw our vet, Vicki Shepherd, hold a full day of teaching on how to prevent and treat lameness in cattle. Our first bovine foot trimming course saw our group of farmers discussing anatomy of the bovine foot, infectious and non-infectious diseases of the foot, risk factors which may lead to certain lameness lesions.
This was followed by a walk through of the Lackham Dairy, to indentify risk factors on the farm.
After lunch, they had an overview of the Dutch 5 Step Method followed by some foot trimming demonstrations.
The afternoon finished up with everybody having some practical foot trimming practice using cadaver feet.
If this practical day sounds interesting, our next day will be held in about 3 months time. Please give the Practice a call on 01249 847290 to reserve your place and we will confirm a date and details soon.
