Knowing what lesions are present when lifting a cow's foot can be key to understanding the cause of the problem and how to address it.

As part of the AHDB Dairy Healthy Feet Programme we have produced a doubled sided lesion recognition card, to aid with recognition and classification of lesions seen. Using photographs and short text descriptions this resource covers the principle points to look for when identifying a lesion. Recording of type and severity of lesions is a corner stone of the programme.

Available by post only this card is printed in a laminate format ideal for hanging alongside the foot crush.
