Raising cows can be a rewarding adventure, but there is one aspect of cattle farming that is often unfamiliar to new cattle owners. Most farm animal enthusiasts know that horses need their hooves checked and trimmed regularly, but do cows need their hooves trimmed too? Knowing when and why to keep cows hooves trimmed and healthy is important to the overall health of most cattle farms. Cows have cloven hooves, which means there are two separate claws or toes that make up each hoof. It is important that these two toes are flat on the bottom and even on each foot to help a cow maintain its balance. When they grow too long, the uneven hooves alter the way the cow walks and can cause temporary or even permanent lameness.
