Producers lose thousands of dollars each year to lameness. With that in mind, Activon Products developed a resource guide on hoof health for producers. The book contains the latest research on foot health, as well as explanations on why cows develop foot problems.

The 24-page booklet also contains a fold-out chart with descriptions, signs, causes and treatment options for several foot problems and a fold-out chart that you can photocopy to use for recording hoof problems for each cow.

The booklet: “Harnessing Hoof Disease” sells for $4 and is available by calling (800) 841-0410. You also can visit their Web site at:
