Our aim with this new service is not to compete with other local foot trimmers in the area. This is an all inclusive package that only requires you to shed cows for the trimmer.
We schedule routine trimming visits similar to our routine fertility visits. Ahead of these visits our VetTechs will come and identify cows required for the visit and generate the picking list. Once the cows are sorted you can leave us to it. Veterinary advice on individual cases can be sought whilst the trimmer is there and regular trimming data analysis will occur with your routine vet to identify areas for action.
By treating cows within two weeks of going lame there is an increase of nearly 20% in cure rates thus highlighting the importance of routine visits.
All this data is recorded against the cows individual eartag on our bespoke software which is available online or via an app on your phone so you can track all animals at any time.
These scores are mapped over time to show trends and allow success to be measured.
We will provide you with a picking list of cows to sort for the trimmer so all you need to do is pull the cows out on the day.
