Tackling dairy herd mobility

Join Nick Bell, cattle veterinary hoof specialist to hear how he worked with dairy farmer Grant Hartman to improve cow welfare and profitability in his herd.

Together they implemented action plans which have reduced cases of lameness, improved herd welfare, increased farm profitability, and meant farm staff can pinpoint areas of progress in mobility.

The average cost of an incidence of lameness, in terms of treatment costs, loss of yield and potential for shortened productive life of the cow may be in the region of £180, which at current levels equates to nearly £15,000 for an average-sized herd.

As well as the work at Trebersed, you’ll also hear about the tools to help you measure and interpret mobility data and identify and achieve improvements.

In this webinar you will learn about:

  • The available support to help tackle dairy mobility issues
  • The benefits of improving mobility
  • AHDB’s Healthy Feet Lite programme
  • The cost benefits for improving mobility scores
