Welcome to
    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.

    You can purchase resources to learn about Lameness and Cow Flow. We regularly run courses on lameness in Inglewood, NZ. Neil is also available for lameness investigations and consultations world wide.


      When? - June 2016.

      What? - Neil will be travelling to 5 areas in Australia presenting his latest seminar for farm staff - "Understanding Lameness on Pasture Based Dairy Farms". The emphasis is on reducing pressure on the foot by understanding cow behaviour and improving cow-flow through the dairy. In some places there will be a practical session. Contact the local vet for information.
