Foot health and lameness are major issues facing today’s dairy producers. To help aid with these issues, UW-Extension will be hosting a Dairy Cattle Hoof Care Seminar on Wednesday, December 9, at Liberty Hall in Kimberly, WI. Presenters include Roger Olson, Zinpro Midwest Dairy Specialist, on “Footbaths: a problem solution or a solution to your problem.” Dorte Dopfer, PhD, will discuss “Digital dermatitis in dairy cattle.” Zinpro’s Roger Olson and Midwestern Hoof Care’s Aaron LaVoy, will cover “Hoof trimming 101 and conduct a blocking/wrapping demonstration.” UW-Extension’s Sarah Mills-Lloyd, DVM, and Eric Ronk will focus on “Hoof trimming records.” The dairy cattle hoof care seminar is sponsored by UW-Extension with financial and “in-kind” support from Appleton Steel Hoof Trimming, Midwestern Hoof Care, UW-Madison School of Veterinary Medicine, and Zinpro.
The fee for the program is $35 per person which includes materials and lunch. Registration is due December 2 to the UW-Extension Calumet County Office.
