Foot Trimming

Routine foot trimming is essential to maintaining good hoof health and ensuring welfare standards with all dairy cows ideally being trimmed at least twice yearly. For the majority of herdsmen the time required for routine trimming is unavailable therefore M & J Hoofcare can provide this service for your herd. We offer a wide variety of services to meet your needs from a full trimming service including routine trimming to treating difficult lameness problems.

Mobility Scoring

Foot health and good mobility are essential in optimising productivity with lame cows presenting a 10% decrease in milk production as well as effects on fertility and longevity. With traditional lameness detection methods (e.g. watching cows as they enter the parlour or routine bulling checks) only detecting 25% of lameness cases, the use of mobility scoring a method developed by AHDB allows cows to be categorised according to the degree of impaired mobility thus allowing identification of individuals for treatment or trimming as well as monitoring long term herd mobility.

Consultancy

M & J Hoofcare also offer a consultancy service. By using our knowledge, experience and software, we can help you identify areas within your system that could be contributing to cattle lameness
