Information

KVK’s hoof trimming chutes provide an optimum working posture to the trimmer and minimum discomfort to the livestock. They ensure that cows balance correctly on all four hoofs and soles, preventing damage to the horn tissue. Livestock with correctly trimmed hoofs are healthy and strong. A cow’s hoof grows on average about 0.5 cm a month.

To keep your livestock healthy, check hoofs regularly and trim them as necessary to ensure optimum comfort and yield. A KVK hoof trimming chute provides the professional hoof trimmer with the best possible equipment. This is the best-selling hoof trimming chute on the market.

KVK chute construction is tried and tested. The chute is easy to use and guarantees the trimmer a correct working posture. This is the ideal way for farmers to resolve day-to-day hoof problems in the herd. You can work with a professional hoof trimmer and together you can take care of your livestock, regularly maintaining hoofs and solving minor problems as they occur. Correctly trimmed hoofs ensure that cattle are healthy and production optimal. 

 

History

KVK Hydra Klov is a modern company devoted to engineering and manufacturing hoof care and hoof trimming equipment. KVK Hydra Klov was founded in 1969 by Karl Viktor Kornerup, who was a fully qualified hoof trimmer, trained at the Royal Danish Veterinary and Agricultural College. Since then Kornerup’s original simple frame has been consistently reengineered, and today’s products are highly efficient and fitted with hydraulics. KVK’s customers are assured of the benefits of more than 50 years’ work with hoof trimming chutes. Our chutes are developed to withstand high loads in tough environments. 

Karl Viktor Kornerup died in 2007. KVK Hydra Klov was then run by Palle Fjord Thomsen until 2009, when KVK became part of the Granly Group.

Aaron was introduced to the dairy industry in 2000 after serving 4 years in the United States Navy when he took a job on a small dairy farm. It was on this farm that he found his passion for working with cows. Fascinated with many aspects of the farm, he took a particular interest in hoof trimming and decided to start his hoof trimming business in 2004. After completing a course on the Dutch Method Aaron continued to study the anatomy and bone structure of the bovine hoof to refine his hoof trimming style, called “The Balance Method”. In 2014 Aaron founded Midwestern Hoof Trimming School and has since been requested to consult for large dairy farms worldwide. Aaron has trained hundreds of hoof trimmers with various skill sets, from beginners to veteran professionals, on The Balance Method.
