Hoofcare

Course Overview

After a brief explanation about the claw physiology, you will execute the maintenance and therapeutic treatment of hoofs of dairy cows.
You assess the state of the cow before and after treatment, and score the claw to different infections. You give advice to the farmer to
improve hoof health. You explain the relationships between nutrition, housing, selection and hoof care eg. you select an appropriate bull
for a cow, with focus on feet and legs. You calculate the mineral needs for healthy claw.

During your period at VABI, there will be company visits to feed companies and suppliers of claw care products.
VABI makes the course practical by spending practical training at dairy farms as a part of the course
