Zinpro Corporation Publishes New Book on Cattle Lameness

Highly visual, field-ready guide helps assess and prevent lameness in dairy and beef cattle 

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn., Sept. 29, 2015 – Zinpro Corporation continues its long contribution to cattle lameness prevention and management efforts with the publication of the new book, titled Cattle Lameness: Identification, Prevention and Control of Claw Lesions. This 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. 

Lameness can be difficult to diagnose and even harder to prevent, yet the ramification of unchecked lameness in a herd can be devastating. The good news is that research about lameness and lesions has never been more comprehensive. 

“The way the Cattle Lameness book was laid out allows readers to easily pick up the information that’s most pertinent to their level of interest,” said Connie Larson, Ph.D., Research and Nutritional Services ruminant manager – North America, Zinpro Corporation. “This book is a reference guide for everyone involved in the industry, from producers to nutritionists to veterinarians.” 

The Cattle Lameness book is available for sale in printed format on Amazon and the ebook is available for sale through the Apple App StoreGoogle Play and the Amazon Appstore.
