Routine Trimming

Routine hoof trimming can help reduce problems and economic loss. It should be done two to three times a year, especially if cattle are on high yielding rations and confined to concrete surfaces.


Typically, routine foot trimming is conducted every 4 to 6 months, but this can be adjusted based on the specific needs of the herd. Regular monitoring of the cows' hooves is essential to identify signs of overgrowth, infections, or other hoof issues that may require prompt attention. By implementing a regular foot trimming schedule, farmers can proactively manage hoof health, prevent lameness, and ensure the overall well-being and productivity of the cattle.
