International Hoof-Care Summit Celebrates Cincinnati’s Horseshoeing History

Brookfield, Wis. – November 11, 2008 – Four days of intense study and discussion awaits hoof-care professionals when American Farriers Journal hosts the International Hoof-Care Summit in Cincinnati Feb. 3–6, 2009.

The conference (program available at http://www.americanfarriers.com/ff/ihcs) will feature 49 of the leading farriers, veterinarians, educators and suppliers who will share cutting-edge ideas that can help raise attendees’ profitability, efficiency and footcare skills.

With “Expanding Your Hoof-Care Horizons” as its theme, the Summit program includes 8 general sessions (with more than 20 presentations), 15 classrooms, 24 roundtables, 24 “how-to” classrooms, and 3 trade show sessions.

Here is a sample of the 76 hours of in-depth learning that AFJ will provide at the Duke Energy Center and Cincinnati Hilton Hotel:

-“Dealing With Big Brown’s Problem Feet” by Vero Beach, Fla., farrier Tom Curl

-“How To Protect Hooves Without Shoes While Making More Money” by Tab Pigg of Vettec

-“A New And Extremely Effective Way of Explaining And Treating Both Laminitis And Founder” by Dr. Doug Butler

Frank Lessiter, editor and publisher of American Farriers Journal, which organizes the annual event, says the Summit is the most intense and innovative hoof-care conference you’ll find that will directly impact your bottom line.

“The Summit has earned a reputation around the world as the most intense footcare learning experience for farriers and equine veterinarians,” he says. “The highly intensive learning that takes place highlights the latest ideas and techniques in hoof care that can be put to immediate use back home.”
