The Giltspur sponsored demonstrations, to be staged four times a day in a purpose built marquee alongside the main Livestock Hall, will feature the most popular techniques supported by independent commentary with additional information provided on locomotion.

RABDF chief executive, Nick Everington comments: “Foot trimming demonstrations have proved a very popular practical exhibit for the past five years as lameness continues to be a significant health and welfare issue within dairy herds. This year we are staging stand alone demonstrations which will be of interest to all visitors as well as livestock exhibitors and their stockmen, which demonstrate best practice together with the benefits of using a professional foot trimmer."
