Hoof Health and Lameness

Dairy cows do more walking than nature intended, and spend significant amounts of time on concrete. The resulting hoof wear leaves dairy cows very prone to lameness.

South Wairarapa Vets focus on both the correct treatment of cows that become lame, and the prevention of lameness in dairy cows through the application of the principles of the Healthy Hoof programme.
