By Steve Mason on

The excerpt below illustrates a claw trimming strategy aimed at achieving balance between inner and outer claws to minimize trauma to the corium.

 

The complete video ‘Functional Foot Care and Trimming in Cattle’ can be found here. Other short excerpts posted on this blog site are: ‘The Anatomy of the Bovine Hoof‘ and ‘Gait Analysis Reveals Source of Sole Lesions‘.
