Want a vacation? Help ease a dairy cow’s pain

Comfy shoes can make all the difference in the world. And that doesn’t just go for humans.

Help ease a cow’s hoof pain and enter to win a $1,000 travel voucher (hello warm weather vacation!) when you purchase CowSlips or Easy Bloc bovine orthopedic shoes. The Heal Her Hot Hooves promotion runs through Nov. 30. The drawing for the travel voucher will be Dec. 10.

CowSlips and Easy Bloc help treat lameness in cows by helping distribute weight off of the damaged hoof, which relieves pain and accelerates healing.

Hoof health is vital to the overall health and comfort of cows, as well as their economic viability. Simply put, a dairy cow with poor hoof health will not produce at the optimum level. Hoof pain contributes to decreased eating and drinking (i.e. decreased milk production), and also can deter breeding as her feet may be in too much pain to stand.
