Hoof Health

Overview

  • Keeping an animal up and moving plays a critical role in performance.  This is critical in both confined and pasture situations.  Keeping the hoof strong and healthy is the first step in preventing lameness.

    Both the environment and nutrition play a critical role in hoof health.  Trace mineral deficiencies can negatively impact hoof health leading to poor mobility.  Supplementing trace minerals to meet the animals requirements can help to improve mineral status and strengthen hoof health.
