Made from highly durable PVC, Cowbloks are a new product as an alternative to our orthopaedic shoes for the treatment of lameness in cattle, these are fitted to the healthy claw and take the weight off the affected claw, thus alleviating the pain and accelerating healing. The cow’s mobility improves, weight is gained and milk yield increases, Our Flip blok has a little lip which is just flipped to accommodate left and right fitting.
