Designed for use as an aid in the treatment of bovine lameness, Demotec blocks are applied with an adhesive to the healthy claw, transferring weight off the affected claw. Wooden blocks are made of hard birch wood providing superior wear.
The hooves of cattle are subject to infections and/or inflammation whatever standards of husbandry are employed. Such conditions are not only distressing to see and worthy of attention from an humanitarian aspect, but affect the mobility of the animal and cause pain and stress which can adversely affect both milk yields and weight gains.
It is therefor important to take all steps to treat these conditions in the best possible manner and so limit economic losses that may otherwise occur.
