Spring is in the air (hopefully) which means turn out time for your dairy cows is just around the corner and a good opportunity to get their feet in order with one of our FarmSkills Cattle Mobility and Foot Trimming workshops.
Our highly qualified and experienced trainers offer a variety of cattle foot trimming workshops from basic herdsman right through to professional level at venues across the country. Our FarmSkills workshops offer practical and vet-led training to you and your farm staff and are run on farm so you get hands-on experience and expert advice in one.
As well as being taught the important anatomical features of the bovine foot along with their relation to basic physiological function, trainees will be taught how to safely restrain a cow and pick up feet using a foot crush, apply the theoretical knowledge of preventative trimming practically and know when and how to apply blocks.
As with all our workshops delegates will also receive a FarmSkills Fact book to take home and use as a reference guide to continue their learning in the future.
