Managing Director Steve Paul trained as a trimmer in Holland in 1991 and is a fully qualified instructor and inspector (NPTC). A founding member of the National Association of Cattle Foot Trimmers (NACFT), Steve is qualified as a category 1 trimmer, in all Steve has been trimming cows’ feet for over 28 years. He advises and consults on herd lameness across the country and regularly lectures about and demonstrates cattle foot trimming to farmers, agricultural and veterinary students and other industry professionals.
I have worked with Steve on a number of lameness workshops across the north of England from Whitby to Lancashire and Cumbria. The workshops have been very successful, mainly because they have been run from a practical approach focusing on prevention, and giving farmers practical tips which they can apply at home on their own herds. Steve Paul is very skilled at trimming cows feet, and this is obvious to those attending the workshops, he is also good at passing these skills onto others via demonstrations and discussions on best practice. This is demonstrated by the fact that many attendees on the workshops have asked if Steve will travel from Somerset to trim cows feet in the north of England!’ Jo Speed, Dairy Co.
