"When it comes to raising quality replacements, feet and legs are a critical element not to ignore, according to international hoof care consultant Karl Burgi.
"'We try to pay close attention to feet and legs in the milking herd, but don’t worry enough about the heifers,' said Burgi, co-owner of Dairyland Hoof Care Institute, Baraboo, Wis. 'Actually, we can prevent many later-in-life problems if we focus on heifers’ feet.'"
