« How can hoof trimmers that collect and evaluate lameness correlate/interface their data into Dairy Comp for useful and easy to manage results for dairy producers/veterinarians/nutritionists. These results would not only help get a more complete picture of a complex devastating disease but establish some action plans for solving a serious animal welfare issue. The industry needs a team approach for lameness conditions. » Dairy farmer, Ontario.
