Understanding and Mitigating Lameness - Virtual Workshop 

March 22, 2022 |  10:00am - 12:30pm

This free virtual workshop is for anyone who works with dairy cattle. This program will cover how to identify lameness, what factors cause lameness, and practical strategies to avoid and mitigate lameness on your dairy.



Workshop Agenda

10:00am - 10:15am - Economic Impact of Lameness: A brief overview of the impact lameness has on farm profitability due to milk loss, delayed conception, and costs related to extra handling, treatment, and early culling.

10:15am - 11:00am - Risk Factors and Best Management Practice: Improving lameness in your dairy herd needs a multi-faceted approach. Presenters will discuss herd management and facility factors that are known risk factors for lameness and strategies to reduce lameness on your farm.

11:00am - 11:15am - Foot Baths: A brief discussion on the best practices for implementing and managing footbaths.

11:15am - Noon - Effective Lameness Detection: Early detection of lameness combined with a routine foot-trimming program is critical to minimize the impact on the farm.

Noon - 12:30pm - Questions for presenters.

We can offer this program at no cost to participants because of the generous support of our sponsors.
