vetPartners Project FEET


Lameness in dairy cows is a common problem encountered on farm and is a significant cause of poor health and welfare. The prevalence of lameness is thought to be around 30% in the national UK dairy herd and on some farms, it is much higher than this.

vetPartners are running Project FEET - Furthering the Evidence-base on cow mobility by Engaging the whole Team.

This project aims to better understand attitudes towards recognising pain and treating it by the whole mobility healthcare team.

We need farmers, foot trimmers, veterinary technicians and vets to complete a short questionnaire (approx. 10 mins) and tell us a bit about themselves, what they think of certain conditions and how they manage lame cows. There is a separate, slightly different link for each group within the team, so please make sure you complete the questionnaire that's relevant to your role:

Farmers

Foot Trimmers

Veterinary Technicians

Veterinary Surgeons

At the end of the questionnaire you can opt to put your details into a prize draw to win £100 Love2shop vouchers!

There is more info on Project FEET available on the vetPartners' website
