Lameness is a major problem in milking dairy farms worldwide. Regularly hoofs care is as important as feeding. On the hoofs lies heavy the whole weight. Trimming hoofs as required, and treating problems as soon as they occur can save money on vet fees, antibiotics, and lost production.
Piggytrim operates by letting the sow to go into the box, after which she is hoisted up lying on her stomach with the legs on either side of the longitudinal tubes. The sow calms down when the floor disappears beneath it, and you can work undisturbed with the hoof care.
Not only a hoof trimming box, but also a treatment box. In the last couple of years there have been an increased demand among Danish farmers, as they want to be able to carry out a routine hoof trimming by themselves. To meet this demand, Bovi Box was constructed with a new approach to hoof trimming.
The Hoof Care Box is used to handle the immediate problems, which occurs between the routine trimmings in a quick and simple way. Until now the box has been sold in more than 600 herds with a variation form 15 – 2700 cows in more than 8 different countries.
