How can we prevent lameness here?

Nico Vreeburg from CowSignals and Vetvice Barn Design is in Cyprus.

He'd like to get your suggestions!

Hi Nico,

Overstocking and below optimal drainage. Stress/competion for feeding space combined with slippery wet surfaces can cause damage to hoofs. Wetness also predisposes to interdigital dermatitis. Do the cows need to be stabled?


Looks overstocked. Cubicles look bit small for size of cows. Get some more feed infront of those cows. How often do they footbath, foot trim ? Starch levels in diet ?
