About Agri-Trim Hoof Care
Agri-Trim Hoof Care provides professional, high-quality hoof trimming and treatment for dairy, beef, and show cattle in Kansas and surrounding areas.
Growing up on a dairy farm in South Africa gave me a deep appreciation for rural, farm life and an enormous passion for agriculture and the dairy industry. My true calling is to serve on a dairy farm and work with cows. I founded Agri-Trim Hoof Care so I could work outdoors and help dairy farmers keep their herds healthy. I believe in twice-a-year scheduled, preventative hoof trimming that keeps cows happy, healthy, comfortable, and performing at their very best.
Hoof Trimming Experience
My hoof trimming experience comes from graduating from two of the top hoof trimming courses in the industry (Dairyland Hoof Care Institute in Baraboo, Wisconsin and the IPC Dairy Training Center [previously known as PTC+] based out of the Netherlands) and from the privilege of working with some of the best cattle hoof trimmers in the business. I believe in farm hygiene and clean and sanitize my equipment after each client. I also participate in continuing education to keep my skills sharp, challenge myself, and ensure I offer my clients nothing but the best. I refuse to offer anything but the best quality work – my mission is to treat your cows like they are my own!
Value of Hoof Trimming
We use the best equipment in the industry to protect the health and safety of your cattle and keep downtime to a minimum. Regular hoof trimming increases milk production, reduces the wasted costs of lameness in cattle, and helps make Kansas farmers profitable. More than that, I believe in the old fashioned values of integrity, hard work, and customer service. I’m not happy unless you are. My goal is to provide high quality service and results that make your cows comfortable – and gives you the best results at the lowest operating costs.
My family and I call northeast Kansas home, but I service all of Kansas, southeast Nebraska, and the surrounding areas. I hope to be able to visit your farm one day! Thank you for your support and your consideration. - Robert van Gooswilligen
