New 650SP2 delivered in Czech Republic


Last month we delivered a 650SP2 hoof trimming chute with 200-1 gate system to Mr. Vencovsky in the Czech Republic. Yesterday we received the first pictures of him working with it. He is enjoying his new chute till the maximum. Fun in hoof trimming, that’s important. Keep up the good work!

Our first rental crush is already in fully action


On Saturday the 30th of November 2019 Jan Brand-Kruth visited our customer Klauenpflege Klewin.

Nico recently set up his own business and decided to bridge the waiting period for his new SA0051 with our SA0051 rental crush. Of course, we were interested in how satisfied Nico is with the rental crush. So, Jan decided to visit him at hoof trimming.

As you can see in the pictures, Nico is already busy trimming claw by claw. His feedback on the crush: The crush is running great. A good decision!

If you have any questions about our rentals simply follow this link: Chute for rent or contact us directly.

Review: 7th Federal Show Blonde d’Aquitaine


On the 22nd – 23rd of November, breeders of the breed Blonde d’Aquitaine were allowed to present their high-quality animals at the 7th National Show Blonde d’Aquitaine.

In different classes, the breeders had to prove themselves in the ring and in front of experts. The evaluation in the ring was conducted by two judges. The final decision was not always easy due to the high quality of each animal.

The general process was very smooth and well organized.

On Friday, the breeders could bring their animals to the Münsterlandhalle in Cloppenburg to prepare them for show on the next day. After the preparation ahd finished, the evening ended with a meal with all participants (member) (a delicious 400g Blonde d’Aquitaine) followd by fruitfull conversation.

On Saturday it became serious. In groups, the breeders led their animals into the ring to hold their own against the competition. After a very interesting day filled with many beautiful animals and interesting conversations, the evening ended.

At this point we would like to thank Thomas Bittner again for his invitation and the association Blonde d’Aquitaine for the beautiful and very interesting day.

Informative Italian claw health symposium


Last week the symposium “La salute del piede” (trans: the claw health) was organized for Italian veterinarians, hoof trimmers and farmers in Parma and Milan.

Both days were visited by more then 50 active participants and the symposium was organized by Viking Genetics and Genesi Projects in cooperation with CowCare Italia. During the two interesting and good visited days in Parma an Milan the focuss was on claw health in general. Specific topics addressed were animal welfare, claw health illnesses and the economic loss for dairy farms. For all our clients which were not able to particpate we have made a short movie with an impression of both days which you can find below or on our YouTube channel.

During the day all the participants had the possibility to get informed about the different models of hoof trimming chutes CowCare Italia offers on the Italian market and also about the different products we offer. During the live demonstrations DD-Delete, TAPE&CARE bandages, TP blocks and our Hoof-Tite COLD glue were used.

Big thanks to Viking Genetics, Genesi Projects, the speakers and CiaoLatte and Bonetti Farm for the excellent organization of these days. We also want to thank all visitors and specially two of our clients for showing their hoof trimming chutes during these interesting days.
