Hoof Care

We now have annual hoof checks on the cattle, as they get older their hooves can get overgrown (rather like toenails) making it uncomfortable to walk impacting on feeding.  This can be particularly difficult when they are heavily pregnant or indeed for Tim to perform his duties!  We use West Wales Hoof Care who this year arrived with some new rather special equipment making it more comfortable for both the cows and those trimming the hooves.  Having said that it does look like torture equipment but the cows took it in their stride and weren’t bothered at all.
