NJB Hoofcare - Area of Operation for Bath, Somerset

Nestling in the rolling Somerset countryside, Bath offers a wide range of attractions for its millions of visitors each year. As Britain's oldest tourist destination, Bath can trace its history of leisure and pilgrim visitors over a thousand years. The springs were consdidered sacred to the Celtic goddess Sulis, long before the Romans got here and eauated Sulis to their own goddess, Minerva. Since then, the city has thrived on constant traffic of visitors, which in turn funded magnificent developments and buildings throughout the centuries, which in their own turn became attractions for yet more visitors. Sadly, Bath was quite heavily damaged during World War II, leading to the demolition of some of the fine terraces and cresents, leaving the way open to some ill-conceived modern developments through the 1960s and 1970s that became known as "The Sack of Bath".

Bath has a very active farming community and a well attended farmers market. Some local farms are owned locally while others are tenanted from the Duchy of Cornwall. The theme running through all agricultural matters here is one of differentiation through producing higher quality, stewardship of the land and first class livestock care, which is why we are often here to provide:

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.
