Assessing & Treating
Lame Cows

ND Challenor Professional Livestock Services offer a range of services to help reduce issues with lame cows, as well as create a long-term, healthy herd strategy to tackle the root causes of hoof issues on the farm.

Preventing lameness is more cost effective than cure and ensures improved comfort for cattle and therefore better welfare. Preventative cattle hoof trimming will help reduce hoof problems including lameness and claw diseases. Cattle with unbalanced or swollen, infected feet will lose weight from lack of hydration and nutrition, milk production will drop and there will be increased costs from premature culling, veterinary treatment, man hours and prolonged calving intervals.
