NJB Hoofcare - Area of Operation in & around Trowbridge

The county town of Wiltshire, Trowbridge has a rich history in weaving and cloth making. In the Industrial Revolution Trowbridge was described as "The Manchester of the West", and many of the newly rich cloth merchants built fine houses near the town centre. Like so many towns in Wiltshire, Trowbridge originally had its roots in agriculture, with the wool and textile industry growing out of that ready availability of fleeces. For similar reasons, Trowbridge also had a healthy leather tanning industry for many years. Since the end of the 19th century, both those industries have declined in Trowbridge and are now gone completely.

However, agriculture is still flourishing in the area, with a number of sizeable dairy herds spread out to the south of the town. The number of cattle there certainly means that we are very busy when we visit Trowbridge to provide:

NJB Hoofcare delivers hoof trimming service and training courses throughout Somerset, Gloucestershire, Wiltshire and Monmouthshire

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.
