The National Assocation of Cattle Foot Trimmers or NACFT are delighted to announce the creation of the Register of Cattle Foot Trimmers which though created by the NACFT, will be autonomous, acting independently from the NACFT with its own powers, identity and website.
NACFT said “The NACFT committee have been listening hard to welfare groups, the AHDB Mobility Steering Group, supermarkets and milk wholesalers and we felt it was important to set up an independent advisory and disciplinary body that would represent and help protect the interests of milk producers. As an association we have always believed that only properly qualified foot trimmers should be trimming the nation’s herds but a professional register of properly qualified foot trimmers that farmers could refer to and communicate with in this day and age, is very prescient.”
The Hoofman Team are licensed cattle foot trimmers and take a bi-annual industry-recognised Check Day exam to remain fully qualified and current. This exam and the creation of the Register of Cattle Foot Trimmers will further set a bench mark of quality and confidence on which farmers, welfare groups and all other interested parties will be able to rely.
