Research suggests that approximately 1 in 3 cows in Wales is lame at any one time. Lameness can have a huge impact, not only on animal welfare, but also on the productivity of the business. In this episode, we meet one of Farming Connect’s demonstration farmers, Russell Morgan of Graig Olway Farm, who has managed to save over £25,000 a year by improving the foot health of his dairy herd. We also hear from Sara Pedersen, a farm animal vet who has been supporting the project.
