Hoof blocks are used for blocking the hooves of lame cattle to provide protection and alleviate discomfort. Conditions treated with hoof blocks are usually due to sole ulcers or white line disease in dairy cows. The wooden or plastic hoof block is applied to the unaffected hoof. This facilitates healing by removing the pressure from the ailing hoof and significantly reducing the pain felt by the cow.
Hoof blocks are made from durable, long-lasting materials and feature skid resistant designs. The design of hoof blocks allows the cow to continue normal gait while wearing the block. Hoof MD provides highly effective adhesives for hoof block attachment, with formulas that are fast-acting and long lasting.
