Trimming and Treating the Lame Cow – Complete Herdsman Training Program Day 6
November 5 @ 12:30 pm - 4:00 pm
We have brought Dr. Dick Clegg out of retirement again to present this afternoon course that will focus on the practical management of hoof health in the dairy herd. Common foot and hoof conditions will be discussed in the classroom session, including diagnosis, treatment, and preventative strategies. Trimming techniques on normal, overgrown and lame cows will then be demonstrated, and each student will have an opportunity to practice on a variety of cadaver feet.
Further one-on-one training is available on your farm to reinforce the classroom material.
