Tipper Trailer for Cattle Lameness

PaddedImage676507-Hoof-trimming-002We are proud to provide our tipper trailer for cattle lameness service.

A cowtipper can be extremely beneficial. It keeps the feet of your animals in good condition in a cost-effective manner. A cowtipper has many additional benefits as well. It is very simple to operate. It is designed for both you and the cow. Since it is cow-friendly, it does not put stress on the cows’ joints. Cows are also at ease when they are on their sides because they are comfortable.

The financial impact of lameness can include loss from decreased production, treatment, and a prolonged calving interval. The average loss is 1.7 to 3 liters per day prior to treatment. Lame cows are also more reluctant to use automatic milking systems and can even show signs of stress when being forced to do so.

More than 10% of cow culling is related to lameness. Cows that are not in good condition are more likely to have lameness. Also, cows that are lame prior to breeding have a reduced ability to conceive.

As you can see, it is important to treat lame cows. Here at West Gippsland Vet Care, we are proud to do this. Our trusted and qualified staff will ensure that your herd stays healthy and sound. If they are lame, we will use our cowtipper and get the answers you need.
