Здоровье копыт

Жизнеспособное стадо - основа высокой молочной продуктивности и долголетия. Коровы со здоровыми копытами производят больше и требуют меньше заботы. Хромота - одна из важнейших причин выбраковки, ведь значительная часть коров страдает как минимум одним из списка заболеваний копыт в своей жизни.

Улучшение здоровья копыт окупается моментально: здоровые коровы имеют хорошее самочувствие, благодаря чему они производят больше и доставляют меньше хлопот. Здоровье копыт приводит к увеличению продуктивного долголетия, улучшенному потреблению корма, высокой фертильности и меньшим затратам на лечение.

'В течение многих лет мы уделяли пристальное внимания не только производственным характеристикам, но и характеристикам здоровья. Сейчас это окупается.'
Кейс Симонс, молочный фермер из Стинберген, Нидерланды

Hoof health explained

Breeding for improved hoof health

Since there are so many hoof disorders, the CRV Hoof Health index was developed to assist in breeding a cow that is less susceptible to all hoof disorders. This makes it easier to make a selection based on hoof health.
