Hello everybody! Last week I have been working with our partners in Cataluña, Digitrim. On Tuesday 12th April, Pere Malet Martinez and me have been training some young farmers in hoof health and hoof trimming. The course was in Girona, in the farm from one of the attendees. It was included in an Academic Program about Dairy Farm Management, this year is the 3rd Edition. There where about 25 attendees on Tuesday. 20160412_135749 In the Morning and Midday we were training farmers in the dairy, showing clinical cases, some with a lot of discussion because they were chronical and complicated lameness cases (perfect anti-example of why it is so important to detect and treat lameness as soon as possible). We also explained steps and objectives of hoof trimming (preventive and therapeutical), hoof bathing and control of infectious hoof diseases.   IMG-20160412-WA0045 IMG-20160412-WA0041 From ANKA and Digitrim Teams, we hope all attendees aresatisfied with this day, as we do.
