The 19th International Symposium and 11th International Conference on Lameness in Ruminants was held from 6th to 9th September 2017 in Munich and the Cattle Lameness Academy team found the event very valuable.
The Symposium theme was Lameness in Ruminants: Mobility, Health and Animal Welfare and the programme looked at:
- Reviewing what has been learnt about lameness so far.
- Bringing together the most current information about lameness control methods with particular emphasis on evidence based treatment, and
- Looking to the future where Knowledge Exchange and On-farm Extension are going to play an important role in helping farmers to control this problem.
