Foot Rot Prevention

January 17, 2019

It has been raining here for almost 36 hours.  This has been one of the wettest fall/winter seasons in recent years.  While good news for pasture regrowth, any livestock in confinement are at risk of foot rot.  Similar to thrush or white line disease in horses, foot rot in ruminants results from a wet environment contaminated with manure.
