Description: Lameness impacts up to a third of our cows in the nation's dairy herd and veterinarians have an enormous opportunity to create an impact. This seminar will provide you with the tools to significantly improve lameness rates and enhance well-being! This session will be very interactive as you will work in small groups on a herd level case. The worktime will be broken up with short mini-lectures and discussions. This dynamic duo of instructors will show you how to assess herd level lameness and use trimming records. We will give you the confidence to work alongside trimmers. Control of infectious hoof diseases will be extensively reviewed. New concepts on the pathogenesis of claw horn disruption will be taught coupled with a systematic approach to preventing white line lesions and sole ulcers. Come prepared to learn and discuss how to help your clients prevent and manage lameness in their herds!
