    A Novel Biomechanically Designed Orthosis for the Bovine Claw

    The orthosis considers the anatomy and biomechanics of the claw and thus ensures a more claw-friendly pressure load and pressure distribution. In addition, the activation of the adhesive makes the application of the orthoses much easier and also allows a very precise application to the claw, which is crucial for the stability of the blocks and the slip resistance.

     

    Our pressure measurement data provide good evidence so far that this is an innovation with great potential to reduce secondary claw damage due to pressure induced lesions and thus improve animal welfare. Evidence will be strengthened in a next step by pressure measurements on larger numbers of live animals.

    Trimming in Ireland, Running a Multi-Chute Operation & Diversification

    "Hoof Trimming is an important benefit to both cows and farmer, because not only will over grown feet evolve into more complicated conditions and cause distress and discomfort to the animal, but can financially cost the farmer in lost milk production and cow fertility problems." - MacRoberts Brothers Hooftrimming

    Join William MacRoberts as he discusses trimming from his unique perspective developed from years of trimming throughout Ireland and his valuable insight into business diversity and multiple chute operations.
