Dairy Cattle Lameness Videos- in Spanish!

Dairy Cattle Lameness Videos- in Spanish!

This past March, CCE regional teams and Pro-Dairy teamed up to host a webinar on Understanding and Mitigating Lameness.  We had a great attendance and had a few participants ask if we would be offering the webinar in Spanish.  We have made 4 animated videos, in Spanish, highlighting the key concepts that were presented during the webinar.

The videos are broken into the following topics:

  • Lameness Overview - In this short video, we discuss the impact of housing facilities and management on lameness and some best management practices for employees.
  • Facility Considerations - In this short video, we discuss the impact of housing facilities and management on lameness and some best management practices for employees.
  • Impact of Nutrition - In this short video, we discuss the impact of nutrition on lameness, risk factors associated with nutrition and lameness, and best management practices for employees to use when working with groups of cows.
  • Hoof Trimming and Foot Baths - In this short video, we will discuss the importance of hoof trimming and footbath management to prevent lameness in dairy cows.

You can access the video series on the NWNY Team's YouTube channel.  We hope you find them useful and, as always, would love to hear your feedback.  Reach out to Kaitlyn Lutz or Margaret Quaassdorff with suggestions for future video topics!
