NJB Hoofcare - Area of Operation in & around Salisbury

Most people come to Salisbury to see the fabulous 12th-century cathedral, blessed with the tallest spire in England. Indeed, the approach to Salisbury Cathedral has been voted "Britains favourite view" in a national poll. But there is much more to this historic city than the wonderful cathedral. The Romans settled north of here, and the Normans built a castle and cathedral on the site of an Iron Age fort at Old Sarum. But it was not until Bishop Herbert Poore moved the first Salisbury Cathedral to open ground south of Old Sarum that the city had space to grow.

Dairy farming around Salisbury is now carried out on widely contrasting scales. From the enormous Mü Wiseman dairies, through many substantial family farms, craft cheesemaking farms right down to community farms, herd sizes vary dramatically. No matter what size or type your herd is, eradicating lameness is vital to ensure the best yield, so we often find ourselves on farms around Salisbury providing:

Hoof care plays an essential part in keeping your cattle healthy

Helping to prevent lameness in your cattle is a very sound investment that protects yield and profits while enhancing the welfare of your herd.

At NJB Hoofcare, we not only believe that zero lameness is possible but we also help our farmers to achieve this goal. By carrying out routine assessments and mobility surveys, problems can be picked up early and dealt with before they get serious. With regular preventive trimming, your herd can be kept lameness free.

You can help yourself to a great degree in this too, by training your own people to carry out examinations and perform basic trimming, watchfulness becomes part of the daily routine rather than waiting for a visit.

There are details of forthcoming courses on the calendar page, or if you would like to have an exclusive training day for your own farm, just give us a call or click in the header of any page to send an email.

Our principal area of operation for hoofcare services, trimming, routine preventive work and mobility assessments is throughout Somerset, Gloucestershire, Wiltshire and Monmouthshire. However, to deliver either our one-day herdsman training course, or two to four day advanced training course, we are happy to travel further afield where enough people are interested.
