Detect lameness early on your farm by lameness scoring your cows. This tool is great for estimating the proportion of lame cows in your herd. If you vet is scoring the herd, they can use the app too.
If you're getting the cows in and notice a lame cow, tap on the app and flag her for treatment later.
Record and Treat
You don't have to be a vet to identify and treat lameness. The 'treatments' section of the app allows you to select the point of pain on the hoof that needs treating, and the app will indicate the type of lameness. Treatments are recorded, so you can track the treatment history for the cow and any herd trends.
The Reports section of the app is where you can track trends that will help understand lameness on your farm. It identifies your:
- current lame cows
- recurring lame cows
- lameness type
- frequency of incidence.
Data can easily be exported to your computer, so you can talk about the reports with a Healthy Hoof advisor, veterinarian or hoof care specialist.
