Gait Analysis Reveals Cause of Sole Lesions

By Steve Mason on

The University of Zurich, Switzerland has produced an excellent 21 minute video dealing with the anatomy and biomechanics of the bovine foot along with a detailed description of functional claw trimming. In the short clip below, gait analysis using slow motion video reveals how walking on concrete causes trauma to the claw leading to bruising (sole hemorrhage), white line lesions and sole ulcers.

 

The complete video ‘Functional Foot Care and Trimming in Cattle’ can be found¬†here.¬†Other short excerpts posted on this blog site are: ‘Claw Trimming the Swiss Way‘ and ‘The Anatomy of the Bovine Hoof‘.
