The Lameness in Ruminants Conference Planning Committee released an updated schedule for its 21st International Symposium and 13th International Conference, scheduled for Aug. 1-5, at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Bloomington-Minneapolis South in Bloomington, Minn. Visit https://lamenessinruminants2022.com to view the revised schedule.
Organizers of this event will apply for RACE (Registry of Approved Continuing Education) credits, which help veterinarians and veterinary technicians fulfill continuing education requirements. The Lameness in Ruminants Conference Planning Committee members anticipate receiving approval of its RACE application for approximately 28 RACE credits.
Among the changes is an additional “Revisiting the Fundamentals of Functional and Therapeutic Hoof Trimming” session with instructors Karl Burgi of Save Cows Network and Lee Erickson of Sure Step Consulting International, LLC. The originally scheduled session quickly reached capacity. Conference organizers anticipate that this added session will also fill completely, so register soon. Participants in this course will learn and practice modern hoof-trimming techniques. The hands-on course includes applying hoof trimming steps one through five to hoofs collected from slaughter.
Revolving around the theme, “Embracing Excellence in Mobility and Wellbeing,” the event offers four tracks – research, trimmer, small ruminant and beef. All tracks are open to all registered attendees. Those in attendance will learn about the most current research and practices that help enhance large and small ruminant hoof health.
