PDPW Planning Dairy Hoof Care Seminars

29 March 2011

US - National experts and top hoof trimmers will share their expertise and answer questions during two identical trainings forums in April.

The Professional Dairy Producers of Wisconsin (PDPW) is holding its Hoof Care Training Sessions on April 20 at the University of Wisconsin Ag Research Station in Marshfield; and April 21 at the Fox Valley Technical College in Chilton.

These one-day seminars will showcase new strategies in foot health that will help producers address dairy cow lameness.

World renowned hoof expert Dr. Jan Shearer will jump-start the session highlighting hoof care, anatomy and management. Other speakers include Dr. David Rhoda, Jerry Bowman and Karl Burgi. There will also be one-of-a-kind labs with cadavers to show you everything from first symptoms to what's really happening inside the hoof.

Registration for Hoof Care Training Sessions are $125 for PDPW members and $175 for non-members.
