The experience of the trimmers mean that if we do have problem they act quickly as they know what works to get those problems sorted, I personally like the WOPA crush as I feel it is a crush that is gently on cows.

A regular routine approach to foot inspection has been integrated into the overall care of the dairy herd this makes the ‘Hoofman’ a vital part of the team at Harper Adams University College.

The ‘Hoofman’ is a fine example of this approach, they embrace continual professional development to ensure early adoption of new techniques and knowledge and provide detailed records of every animal presented essential for management, benchmarking and assurance requirements.

As the dairy industry continues to evolve, units such as the one at Harper Adams are specialising and increasing in scale as this happens the approach to dairy herd management is also changing. Herd Managers are adopting more professional practices and they require the same from the services provided by the dairy support sector.

Having been trained in foot trimming myself I soon notice if something is not quite right with a cow’s foot, but to be fair so far I have always been very happy with the results and also like the blocks Charlie uses and have started to use them myself now!

The combination of a skilled trimmer and a helper who is recording all the trimming details and helping to speed things up works very well, which means I have time to get on with other jobs.
