What is Mobility Matters?
In response to Farmers’ requests for more freely and easily accessible educational material on cattle lameness and foot health, we have developed the Mobility Matters videos. This series of short videos look into all aspects of foot health and lameness, covering a variety of topics including mobility scoring, knife sharpening, and even the anatomy of the cow’s foot. We hope these practical and informative videos will challenge you to think about these aspects of lameness in your herd.
