NJB Hoofcare - Area of Operation for Wells, Somerset

Wells is the smallest city in England: a city purely because of the presence of its famous cathedral. In reality, this quiet Somerset backwater, at the foot of the Mendip Hills, close to the attractions of Wookey Hole and the Ebbor George Nature Reserve is more like a compact country town. The history goes back to Roman times and beyond, with many fascinating indications to changes of occupancy. Being a small town, with easy walking distances between any parts has made Wells a great attraction for tourists and history lovers. Its sometime turbulent past has left physical marks still visible to this day. Local cheese is very popular and there is a specialist cheese shop in the town. Of course, you can't have cheese without milk, so there are dairy herds managed in many surrouunding areas. To make sure that these herds have good hoof health and low incidence of cattle lameness, we are very often called upon by farmers around Wells for:

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.
