Lameness and overgrown feet are a major economic and welfare problem in dairy cattle. This book aims to give the reader a thorough understanding of the structure of the foot, what happens during overgrowth and how this is corrected by foot trimming. Common foot diseases are described in detail and the many factors which could contribute to a high incidence of lameness are discussed, providing an excellent basis for prevention. Detailed drawings and colour photographs illustrate the book. Together with Roger Blowey's video Foot Care in Cattle, also produced by Farming Press, it should help farmers deal with this expensive problem. 85pp. Index. Size: 4to Crown (9¾" x 7½")
