Healthy Hoof

The Healthy Hoof Programme focuses on prevention of lameness with information and training on management and treatment. It is a simple, step-wise approach to managing lameness on your dairy farm.

It includes on-farm training, observing cow flow, treating lame cows, track and shed design, and how to manage the herd effectively to prevent lameness.

Healthy Hoof has been developed in consultation with vets as well as local and international lameness experts.

The programme’s benefits reach further than just cost savings from reduced lameness. We see improved staff performance due to the education and training provided. The clear actions result in more confidence to act and address lameness problems.
