Our facilities are equipped with hydraulic equipment to tip cattle that are in need of foot trims or treatment. With any hoofed animal, it is important to monitor and maintain sound hoof health. Lameness occurs when there is a crippling or physically disabling foot or leg problem that causes cattle to limp or move with difficulty. Much of lameness is due to hoof-related health issues. Lameness in cattle is often a reason for culling and lameness is costly to producers. As a result of lameness, cattle can suffer weight loss. With bulls in particular, cattle can be hesitant to perform their breeding tasks and even incur fever which affects fertility. Lameness is derived from a long list of unhealthy hoof conditions such as a sole abscess, foot rot or hairy warts.
