The Healthy Feet Programme
The AHDB Healthy Feet Programme (HFP) was first launched in 2011. It followed extensive research at Bristol University in how to successfully help farmers reduce their lameness.
The HFP is delivered by Mobility Mentors who are specially trained in herd lameness control and advisory skills. Since then, AHDB-funded research has further enhanced our understanding of lameness reduction.
This section of the website contains all the resources for Mobility Mentors to carry out full Healthy feet programme and the Healthy feet lite programme.
The Healthy Feet Programme provides vets and hoof trimmers with a structured approach to improving foot health in dairy herds. Only trained and qualified Mobility Mentors are able to deliver the programme.
Vets and claw trimmers interested in becoming Mobility Mentors should contact AHDB or enrol directly on a training workshop, currently being delivered through BCVA (for eligible vets, trimmers and consultants). Click here for latest news on Mobility Mentor Training | BCVA.
