With the National Fieldays cancelled for the 2020 season, hoof-care specialists VeeHof are creating their own VeeHof Fieldays Online 2020 Event.

Fred Hoekstra from VeeHof says they love to interact face to face with national customers.

“So we and the Dairy Hoofcare Institute (DHI) have created a new dynamic online experience opportunity for our customers via our daily webinars, which will run from the June 15 to June 26, 2020.”

The webinars will showcase VeeHof’s extensive range of hoof care equipment, including the Wopa Hoof Treatment Crush, hoof knives, knife sharpening equipment, claw blocks and how to apply them. Additionally, there will be a live discussion session with Fred, who will answer questions on the practical use of the different hoof care products and services available. 

Alternatively, visitors can access a private chat room to talk one-on-one about a specific product with a member of the VeeHof sales team. The webinars will alternate with sessions from the Dairy Hoofcare Institute, outlining the various training course opportunities on offer, again, with an opportunity for live discussion with Fred. 

As a bonus, anyone who attends Veehof Field Days Online or the Dairy Hoofcare Institute Webinar will be given the opportunity to attend one of two specialised Lameness Seminars that will be live streamed. Details for these seminars will be provided during the online field days presentations.
