The NACFT’s mission is to promote excellence in cattle foot care.

The NACFTs mission is to promote excellence in cattle hoof care and we do this by ensuring the UK cattle hoof trimmers are trained, qualified and skilled.  We do this by ensuring our members are Category 1 or Category 2, fully qualified and attend regular Check Days and CPD, to ensure they are working to the best possible standards to ensure the health and welfare of the UK cattle herd.

Controlling lameness is key to ensuring the health, welfare and production standards of the UK dairy and beef herds.  We know that if a cow is lame her milk production will decline, thereby affecting your top line. By ensuring your cattle’s feet are in the best condition, you ensure your business is also in the best condition!

Be trained, Be qualified, Be skilled, Stay skilled
