Optimal hoofcare

Challenges in the barn

Healthy hooves are essential for the overall health, productivity, and profitability of dairy operations, keeping them in optimal condition is one of the main points of attention in dairy operations. Several infections threaten the health of cow's hooves

Digital dermatitis

Digital dermatitis, also called heel warts, is a contagious bacterial infection that primarily affects the skin and soft tissues of the cow's hooves, particularly in the area between the claws.

White Line Disease

White line disease, also known as seedy toe, is a fungal or bacterial infection that affects the white line area of the hoof. It can lead to separation of the hoof wall and lameness.

Hoof Rot

Hoof rot is another bacterial infection that affects the hooves of dairy cows. It typically occurs in wet and unsanitary environments, leading to foul-smelling, rotting hooves and lameness.
