Infrared Thermography for Lesion Monitoring in Cattle Lameness

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference Contribution (Conference Proceeding)


Infrared thermography has been shown to be useful for diagnosing claw abnormalities in cattle (Alsaaod & Büscher 2012, Main, et al. 2012, Nikkhah, et al. 2005, Stokes, et al. 2012). As a non-invasive technique, this has the potential to be an effective method of lesion diagnosis, at an individual and herd level. In this study dairy cattle with claw lesions were monitored using infrared thermography to investigate the change in foot temperature over time and the effect of lesion treatment
