I didn't actually see the hoof trimmer actually trim the hooves.were we meant to?

hope you will help the people to improve cattle welfare there :-)

Yes, I didn't see it actually working or any hoof trimming being done. Was the cow on its side whilst having its feet done? How lame was it before hand? It was certainly lame afterwards. The only point of the whole thing would be if the hoof trimmer could work quickly and efficiently with least possible stress to cow or person. We didn't see any of that.

Fact is that the cow is lame on three legs after trimming. Trimming itself was not shown, so we do not know about his skills. Interaction with the cow is rather rough. But above all, without good equipment hoof trimming is just impossible. How can the fix a cow properly in this poor equipment? Takes him a long time per cow and it's dangerous and stressful for him and the cow. See also good information on hoof trimming on www.DairylandHoofCare.com

Sadly the unit looks like a mobile slaughter truck! Good job these guys are being educated, the first step will be to get them to recognise the need to change and improve. It again shows that Europe has some the best and most technologically advance cattle foot trimmers in the world!

Hi guys, trimmer was doing the best he could.... But that was not good enough. Sadly in many parts of the world people still wait till cows are extremely lame and then start treating and trimming them.... Half a year to late...
In taiwan they use rice straw sandels. They do not have blocks to lift up the painfull claw...
