Lameness and overgrown feet are a major economic and welfare problem in dairy cattle. This book aims to give the reader a thorough understanding of the structure of the foot, what happens during overgrowth and how this is corrected by foot trimming. Common foot diseases are described in detail and the many factors which could contribute to a high incidence of lameness are discussed, providing a good basis for prevention.
