Guidelines for reduction in lameness

A series of guidelines are in preparation. These are based on the analysis of data collected during the assessment of husbandry systems in GB, NL, D and PL, which led to the identification of specific lameness risk factors. The guidelines are intended as an aid in the implementation of 'Best Practice' dairy husbandry systems designed to reduce the incidence of lameness.
