WASHINGTON — Hoard’s Dairyman held their monthly webinar on Monday, July 12 at noon (Central time). Karl Burgi, a hoof care consultant and founder of the Save Cows Network, presented “Three key points for exceptional hoof health.”
Burgi focused on lameness prevention through timed functional hoof trimming and ideal hoof shape, managing inflammation, and identifying poor flooring that can have a negative effect on hoof health. He also talked about constructing ideal, long-lasting barn floors and repairing problems in older facilities. The webinar was sponsored by Hoof Zink.

These educational sessions are held the second Monday of each month and are broadcast live from noon until 1 p.m. (Central time).
