The third National Cattle Mobility Event was held at the Reaseheath College near Nantwich in Cheshire, on April 8th, 2010. Over 250 delegates attended the event, including farmers, foot trimmers, vets, consultants, and both agricultural and veterinary students.

 

The Keynote Speaker was Professor Nigel Cook from the University of Wisconsin, USA, who spoke about 'Cattle lameness and the 'First Step' programme'. Dr Mike Coffey, leader of the SAC's Animal Breeding Group, also gave an excellent presentation on how genetics affect mobility and locomotion.
