NJB Hoofcare - Area of Operation in & around Clevedon

The town of Clevedon is situated on the Bristol Channel Coast and was originally a hillside settlement. The moorland in and around Clevedon was heavily occupied in Roman times and much of their influence on the land can still be seen. Between the 14th and 19th centuries, Clevedon remained quite unchanged with the Manor House in the possession of the Elton family since the early 1700s and a few farms.

However, in the 19th century, the town became a very popular resort with a new pier, reputedly the first built on mathematical principles, so that it could withstand the battering of the 14metre tid in the area, giving great views of the Welsh coast. The first commercial production of penicillin was here in Clevedon and ingenuity shone, with among other things, the demonstration of the world's first float controlled carburettor.

These days a number of the original farms from the early days of the Manor House still survive and have been joined by newer farms to swell the head count of cattle in the area, giving us more opportunities to visit local farmers and 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.
