Foot Trimming Course starts 1st March 2017

We will be holding a foot trimming course covering lameness and footcare. The 3 day course will be on Wednesday 1st March, Friday 10th and 17th March and will start with a classroom based session run by one of our Directors, Julian Allen covering anatomy of the foot, the causes of lame cows, how to manage these factors and how to improve recovery. Participants will then move onto farm for the remaining two and a half days with our practice foot trimmers, John Maddocks and Tim Jeffrey. They will cover the equipment necessary to do the job safely, the Dutch ‘5 step method’, the treatment of lame cows, application of a block and which type of block to use and which cows need medical treatment along with their trimming. Participants will be given the chance to trim and treat several lame cows, identifying lesions as they go.
The cost of the course is £400 and is limited to 6 places so don’t delay in calling us to book your place on 01258 472314!


I have no doubt that their expert knowledge and gentle care meant that our cow survived.
