Cattle Foot Trimming course

Cattle Hoof Trimming Closeup

Hoof Trimming

This course lasts two days, with one evening. It is a practical course, based near Appleby

The course covers:

  • Routine hoof trimming using the 5-step Dutch method
  • Sharpening knives
  • Applying blocks
  • Practical ways to reduce lameness on farm

No previous experience is needed, though this foot trimming course is just as useful for farmers who’ve trimmed plenty of cows feet but not had formal training.

By the end of the course you’ll be able to trim feet to the correct shape, treat lame cows effectively and know how to reduce lameness incidence.
