Subtropical Dairy Programme – Dorrigo – “Healthy Hooves’ On-farm session

March 15 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

Free

Andres Ardila Avila, from the UQ Gatton Vet School will facilitate a hands-on workshop focusing on ‘healthy hooves’ in our dairy herds.

Why bother with ‘healthy hooves’?
• Lame cows take time, energy and skill to treat properly.
• Lame cows represent a financial cost to your farm business and, therefore, impact on profitability.
• Lame cows produce less milk, lose weight, and take longer to cycle.
• Reducing the number of lame cows in your herd requires a long-term, planned approach that is supported by the whole farm team.

Andres has planned a day around discussing the concept of ‘healthy hooves’ on our dairy farms in the morning session, followed by a hands-on practical session to make sure participants have some confidence around applying the concepts learnt and practicing the skills and techniques used on farm.
