Hoof Care

You can trust CID LINES, An Ecolab Company to provide you with the advice and solutions to maintain optimal hoof care on your dairy farm.

Lameness is the third most important problem on many modern dairy farms after mastitis and reproductive failure. The considerable economic losses are attributable to the cost of treatment, decreased milk production, decreased reproductive performance, and increased culling. The incidence of lameness has steadily increased over the past 20 years, and on some farms over half of the animals become lame at least once each year.
