Lameness in dairy cows is a costly issue!
Lameness in dairy cows is a prevalent and costly issue for farmers. When cows become lame and go untreated, they do not produce as much milk.
Worse, the condition can escalate to the point where cows can’t walk, stopping milk production altogether.
Dairy cows can develop a variety of infections or conditions in their claws.
• White line disease
• Thin soles
Employing proper trimming techniques also helps sustain hoof health and avoid downtime.
Regardless of the injury or condition, using Vettec Bovi-Bond and rubber blocking is simple and easy to help keep production moving. This is because a block elevates an injured claw off the ground, which promotes quicker recovery and alleviates pain.
