The power of a good hoof block for cows.
Blocking helps regardless of the injury or condition to keep the cow comfortable and maintain her optimal production.
Similar to how humans use crutches to limit the use of an injured foot in order to heal, cows rely on a similar approach called blocking. This approach helps to allow abscesses, claw injuries or other conditions to heal. The hoof blocks are applied to a cow’s healthy claw to elevate the injured one off the ground. This way the injured claw will heal faster and alleviate pain. As the feet and claws support the cow’s entire body weight, it is important to use a good and durable quality hoof block. The Vettec hoof blocks are made of high end quality products and offer the needed stability and comfort.
