Lame cows continue to be among the three main problems on New Zealand dairy
farms together with mastitis and infertility. This is true world wide.
It is possible to have very low lameness in a herd by understanding the causes of
the different foot lesions and by putting into place certain
management practices that will reduce foot wear.
This website is a source of information and helps for farmers and vets in the dairy industry.
There are free downloadable articles on many topics available in the Articles tab at the side. New - an article on Footbaths in both Pastoral and Indoor Dairy Systems.
