Our cows’ hooves are the weakest link in their health, along with feed and feed intake. Cows that become lame will eat, drink and lie down less. They will therefore produce less milk and it will be more difficult to get them in calf. Plus they will need additional attention and work on an ongoing basis. This is why it is important for every livestock farmer to pay constant attention to the health of his cows’ hooves. A good manager makes hoof health care an integral part of his work and in his daily, weekly, monthly and annual routine. He also focuses on prevention, so his time is not constantly taken up treating lame cows. He thinks ahead! With easily understandable descriptions, clear drawings and lots of photographs Hoof Signals provides all the practical knowledge a farmer needs to get hoof health on his dairy farm under control.
