What our students say

I would just like to pass on that we thoroughly enjoyed the workshop we had on our farm, Fred definitely opened our eyes to some of the issues we were having and really made us think outside the box. We are having a meeting with the farm owner to discuss the knowledge we have gained and we are hoping to implement some of the changes sooner rather than later. Please thank Fred on our behalf, to be honest I wished there were more hours in the day or we didn’t have to do avo milking just so we could do more cows!

The 1-day course is invaluable, considering the hours I used to spend doing the hooves incorrectly – it is a day well spent!

I finally realise how the hoof becomes damaged and why our procedures can affect the healing process. Also helped me understand the correct hoof shape and how it affects the cows locomotion.

Lame cows are no longer a problem to deal with which makes the job a pleasure and so much safer for the person dealing with lame cows, thus less stress.
