Abstract

In this field study 168 limbs of dairy cows with claw lesions (sole ulcer or white line disease) were treated on alpine pastures in the Canton Uri, Switzerland. Three different techniques of elevating a claw were tested (Cowslip, traditional Technovit-Block and wedge-shaped Technovit-Block).These blocks were compared for applicability, duration of adhesion, wear and the influence on posture and gait. The elevation of an affected claw resulted four days after application in a remarkable decreasing of the lameness score. In comparison of the three different elevations the quick and easy applicability of the cowslip was outstanding but they did not last long enough and exhibited more signs of wear than the wooden blocks. Cows, which were treated with a wedge-shaped block showed a more free and secure gait compared to the cows treated with a traditional block

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
