Zinpro publishes new book on cattle lameness



Zinpro Corporation has published new book titled Cattle Lameness: Identification, Prevention and Control of Claw Lesions.

The highly visual, field-ready guide is designed to help assess and prevent lameness in dairy and beef cattle.

"There are a number of very good textbooks on the market today, but they are just texts," said Dana Tomlinson, Ph.D., research nutritionist, Zinpro Corporation. "Our objective with this book was to give the producer or nutritionist an understandable manual that they can take to the field and quickly apply that knowledge in identifying lesions that are most prevalent in dairy and beef cattle."

The Cattle Lameness book features in-depth information on causes of lameness, the anatomy of the foot, claw lesions and diseases, nutrition, and hoof and claw care. It was developed by the Zinpro International Bovine Lameness Committee, which is comprised of a global team of well-known industry experts that includes Ph.D.-level nutritionists, veterinarians and academicians.
