> for any help Thanks will Will, I had that happen to a cow I had bred to a local bull. They put her in a pasture that had boggy ground.But unlike normal boggy ground that has a lot of water this was very clay like.Her toes were very long. To make a long story short I brought her home and put hoof dressing on her like a horse, but it didn't help so I left it alone and bred her to a different bull this year.They had rocky ground and it trimmed her hoofs real nice but the cracks are still there. They dont bother her at all. I have wondered if it is the type of hoof she has they seem to be thicker than normal cattle feet.How about your bull?? Cindy

I had a bull that split his hoof, and limped around. I took him to the vet and he looked at him and said to just keep him on dry ground to keep mud from packing in the split hoof. I keep him in my hay field and in about a month he was healed up and hasn't limped since. It will heal up, but with mud drying in the crack, it will take a lot longer. My bull's hoof grew back together.
