Everyone has heard of Cheddar, if only because of the cheese. Although, having given the name to the process of "Cheddaring", the town has been unable to protect its naming rights of the product in the way that other famous cheese regions such as Wensleydale, Stilton and Camambert have. However, the proud tradition of making the best Cheddar Cheese is still strong in the town. Things have been done in pretty much the same way since the 12th century, and the Cheddar Gorge Cheese Company is now a very famous and popular tourist visit, with samples of the product being taken home to all corners of the world.<br /><br />With the best will in the world, you can't make the best cheese without the best milk, and you can't get the best milk reliably without a healthy herd. It is the great care of every aspect, including lameness in cattle that means we are often relied upon by famers around Cheddar to provide:

Cattle Foot Trimming Trainees on Our Courses
Helping to prevent lameness in your cattle is a very sound investment that protects yield and profits while enhancing the welfare of your herd.<br /><br />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.<br /><br />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.<br /><br />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.<br /><br />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.
