Research overview:
As an effective means to prevent the hoof diseases it is effective to carry out a proper hoof shaving and in 2000 we prepared a manual on hoof care including a new hoof shaving method (Dutch system) suited to a free-stall feeding. Based on this manual we hold seminars and provide abundant opportunities to master a new technique to educate the farmers on the importance of hoof care including periodical hoof shaving and reduce the hoof diseases.
