Sole ulcer (SU) and white line disease (WLD) are 2 of the most debilitating and painful claw lesions in dairy cows related to almost 30% of lameness events and largely consequences of metabolic disorders and mechanical loading. The aim of this study was to assess post-mortem the prevalence of SU and WLD on hind feet of finishing beef cattle and to test their variation among breed, sex and time point.

Abstract

Sole ulcer (SU) and white line disease (WLD) are 2 of the most debilitating and painful claw lesions in dairy cows related to almost 30% of lameness events and largely consequences of metabolic disorders and mechanical loading. The aim of this study was to assess post-mortem the prevalence of SU and WLD on hind feet of finishing beef cattle and to test their variation among breed, sex and time point.
