Hoof Health and Trimming Workshops

Two Hoof Health and Trimming Workshops are being held March 27th. One will be in Antigonish (9-11 AM) another in Grand Pre (5-7 PM). Karl Burgi will be leading the sessions. Karl travels throughout the world teaching and consulting to improve hoof health within the dairy industry. His motto is: “As caretakers of dairy cattle, we have a responsibility to do everything in our power…. my personal passion and business mission is to SAVE COWS.” These workshops will give you the chance to spend some valuable time with Karl, discussing methods to improve hoof health, maintain productivity and keep cows in the herd as long as possible. You will also get you the chance to see Karl working with cows to demonstrate his hoof trimming techniques. Because of the practical nature of these workshops, participant numbers will be limited to 20. These sessions are being offered as a companion to Dairy Focus 2012. Registration for each workshop is $50 + HST. If you are interested, please contact Gail at (902) 678-7722, EXT 221 or g.walsh@agrapoint.ca use the registration form at www.dairyfocus.com/register.html Deadline to register is March 6th.
