Mobility Mentor Programme

The Healthy Feet Programme provides vets and claw trimmers with a structured approach to improving foot health in dairy herds. Only trained and qualified Mobility Mentors are able to deliver the programme, which has been shown to reduce lameness by approximately one third in 12 months (Reaseheath report).

What is new

The Healthy Feet Programme is undergoing a new phase of development. AHDB are reconnecting to previously trained mobility mentors and some new advisor options are being rolled out including:

  1. Updated resources
  2. The HFPlite. This is a cut-down version modelled on the original Healthy Feet Project protocol
  3. Farmer Action Groups (farmers working together to find practical solutions to the main risk factors and success factors)
  4. Industry consultation which will lead to a joined-up National initiative

Vets and claw trimmers interested in becoming Mobility Mentors should contact AHDB or submit our contact form for further details.
