The Healthy Hoof Programme is a simple, stepwise approach to managing lameness on dairy farms caused by physical factors.

It consists of five key steps that each farm takes with the support of a trained programme provider.

The Healthy Hoof Programme is based on the work of New Zealand's own world renowned lameness specialist, Neil Chesterton. It has been developed in consultation with vets as well as local and international lameness experts.

Forty farms nationwide have piloted Healthy Hoof during the last two seasons and farmer feedback has been instrumental in shaping the final programme.
