Claw problems and lameness are important, often underestimated conditions in dairy cattle. They have serious economic consequences and a negative impact on cow welfare.The VLAIO Clawcare project spent four years investigating how the approach to claw problems on Flemish dairy farms could be further updated and improved on both a preventive and curative level.
The project partners are happy to present the results to you through practical and interactive workshops. They answer the following questions::
