This is video from June 2009, but it will give you an idea of what we did yesterday-yes it was our hoof trimming day! We trimmed 113 head of cows (all 4 feet) in about 8 hours, including set up and clean up time. We had 2 trimming chutes and 4 hoof trimmers. Hoof trimmers are very important in making sure that cows have healthy feet. By trimming cows twice every year, we make sure that hooves remain free of sores, cuts, and abnormal growths. Just like when we as humans trim our long finger nails.
