Dairy cows change locomotion score and sensitivity to pain with trimming and infectious or non-infectious lesions

Abstract

Lameness can negatively affect production, but there is still controversy about the perception of pain in dairy cows. This study aimed to verify the effects of hoof affections in dairy cows on locomotion score, physiological attributes, pressure nociceptive threshold, and thermographic variables, as well as assess improvement on these variables after… (More)
