Väätsa Agro has bought in the spring of 2010 a SA0039 hydraulic hoof trimming crush in combination with a hoof trimming training and support plan to improve the claw health on their farms. Since then, large improvements have been seen. Two young hoof trimmers have been trained in the Dutch hoof trimming method and they are working with the crush on a daily base.

 

Before the training lameness and claw diseases was one of the main reasons why a cow would be send to the meat plant. Nowadays lameness is not a topic anymore. This is a result of good education in the Dutch hoof trimming method and a claw health plan which focusses on preventive trimming instead of curative trimming.

At the same time, with the help of a ClawHealth plan from CowCare SIA, Väätsa Agro has solved the large amount of Mortellaro products by making use of the full product range of Intracare products.

Good hooftrimming in combination with the use of good equipment and products and a clear Claw Health programm has led to amazing results.

The SA0039 hydraulic crush is equipped with tail gates behind the crush, an electric switch system for the engine, higher front leg holders and a hydraulic backpipe + front plates.
