Intervention guide for the control of lameness in dairy herds by Idele and ONIRIS
In Significant Impact Groups:
Species targeted: Dairy;
Locomotor problems in dairy cows have been on the increase in recent years. This is due to changes in housing systems, feeding systems, workload of farmers and finally herd groupings which favour the spread of Mortellaro disease. A method of intervention in farms with lameness problems has been developed by pooling the expertise of different livestock advisors and vets. This method is described in the document: “Intervention method for the control of lameness in dairy herds”. It specifies the different parts of the intervention in 3 booklets : a: general presentation of the method and the stages of the intervention b: presentation of methods for investigating risk factors related to housing, food and sanitary conduct c: collection of sample support documents for operational intervention. The main originality of this intervention document in a dairy cow farm facing lameness is that it gathers all the intervention methodology from the preparation to the monitoring of the situation.
