Effect of concentrate to silage ratio and hoof trimming on lameness in dairy cows

  • Felicity J Manson (a1) and J D Leaver

Extract

Lameness in dairy cows has both important animal welfare and economic implications. High concentrate to silage ratios may be an important predisposing factor, whilst trimming has been advocated as an effective preventative measure. This trial examined the effects of these two factors on locomotion, incidence of lameness and hoof measurements.
