US & Canadian hoof trimmers lead the way in data usage in controling lameness

Trip to US with the new All4feet Zone tablet and came back some new ideas from hoof trimmers that are so forward thinking . Great response from the US & Canadian trimmers. A new approach to tackling lameness with detailed data. A greater awareness of using data themselves with benchmarking named farms of quality, sharing data with input and working as a team. But what came across was the requirement of speed in recording. Saving 15 seconds a cow recording on a 120 cow trimming day adds up to half an hour a day saved. The machines, team work and the cow flow is so efficient when watching trimming demonstrations, everything is measured in time and motion.   Hopefully have the Zone tablet on the market in December.
