Overview

Lameness is one of the most costly diseases affecting cattle and cases are increasing as dairy cows spend more time confined to concrete instead of grassy pasture. The economic impact of lameness is significant. Preventive claw care is increasingly practiced in modern dairy farming and is now recognized as a necessary investment in herd health.

Manual for Treatment and Control of Lameness in Cattle includes:

* clear illustrations of anatomical features of the bovine foot

* detailed photographs of lesions

* discussion on the practical aspect of functional and corrective trimming

* references for veterinarians, animals/dairy scientists, commercial hoof trimmers, dairy farmers and dairy health technicians
