Booties for cows with sore feet

Filed under: Animals,Science by Orangemaster @ 12:29 pm

A veterinarian in Winterswijk, Gelderland has developed slippers for cows with inflamed feet. Ron Jansen made the slippers using foam rubber and velcro. The cows need to wear them for five days, during which the footwear will ease the pain and allow the inflammation to heal quicker by shielding it from manure.

We could not find a picture, but we did find a nice cow photo shoot.
