Hoof care is not just about hooves
DeLaval takes a “total hoof care” approach, catering not just for the hooves, but also the environment in which the cows spend their time. Doing so ensures that both the symptoms and the causes of hoof problems are dealt with quickly, safely and comprehensively.
Stop infection in its tracks
Infection problems are growing as a hoof health issue and limiting their spread through collective or individual treatments is key to maintaining good hoof health. DeLaval has developed and thoroughly tested a number of effective solutions in this area.
Prevent hoof problems
DeLaval’s “total hoof care” approach recommends that, apart from regular hoof baths, herds should also be assessed for lameness and actions taken to treat those animals that suffer from it. A risk assessment should be carried out on every farm to identify possible causes, and protocols implemented to prevent further problems. The combination of best practices and DeLaval’s market-leading hoof care products help farmers maintain a healthy herd and a profitable farm.
