Cow sliced 2 inches off the side of her hoof off during transit yesterday. Some blood, open flesh - not deep - on the surface but open. a little limping. Is there anything that can be done for a cut hoof? wrapping just seems impractical.

inclined toward benign neglect, but I've not had a cut in the hoof before.

thoughts?

Keep her out of as much manure and mud as you can and apply benign neglect

I agree ,also if she is not going to be shipped for slaughter right away you can give her a shot of long acting pen as prevention against infection.
