NJB Hoofcare addresses an audience of farmers

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.

These days, the fairground attractions have taken the focus of young visitors, but the fair is still very much about farming and livestock. With such a strong tradition of livestock management in the Bridgewater area, we often find ourselves here to provide:
