NJB Hoofcare - Area of Operation for Brockhampton,, Forest of Dean, Gloucestershire

Brockhampton is 'Brook settlement'. In Domesday it was Caplefore and marked as Brochamtona in the annotated Herefordshire Domesday of 1160-70. In Domesday Caplefore was a manor of the Church of Hereford. There were five English hides which paid tax and three Welsh hides which paid six shillings a year to the canons of the cathedral. In the five English hides there was one plough in lordship. There were eight villagers with seven ploughs and three acres of meadow.

Apart from the many attractions of Brockhampton, there is a flourishing agricultural economy in the surrounding areas. Beef and dairy cattle are kept on farms of all sizes, from small family units with just a few head, to larger commercialised dairy herds.

Whatever the size of your herd, the risk of cattle lameness affecting their yield and well being is the same. That is why many farmers in the Brockhampton area call in NJB Hoofcare for:
