Negative effects of clawproblems
Hoof care consists of two elements. First, hoofs must be trimmed consistently and regularly. Second is cleaning and disinfecting the claws. A solution often used by dairy farmers to accomplish this is a claw bath, which gets rid of all harmful bacteria. These claw baths however often cause stress in dairy cattle, as the disinfectants required for optimal hoof care feels uncomfortable. Another solution is to place claw mats after the milking robot. These claw mats have the same effect as claw baths, but have a number of benefits in comparison.
– Consistent hoof care
– Does not cause stress in dairy cattle
– Improved claw health leads to better results
Administering vitamins and minerals
Individually administering these supplements is a solution for this problem. There are different ways to accomplish this and the ideal method for doing so is different for every dairy farm.
