Like any great invention, The Smart Block was born out of necessity. Not by a large corporation that targets different breeds of animals, and not by a glue manufacturer, but by an independent professional hoof-trimmer and former dairy farmer, whose most important goal was to help lame cows heal faster, and provide them the comfort they need on their road to recovery.
The Smart Block is the only block invented with cow comfort in mind, and every detail was thoughtfully designed to improve the recurring issues that Martin VanBeek experienced with all other blocks on the market throughout his lifetime of caring for cows.
Martin invested many years of research and numerous trials in the innovative development of
The Smart Block, and it has taken the hoof health industry to a new level of treating lame cows. In six short years, The Smart Block has grown from a product to a solid and trusted brand that has developed a full line of blocks to address any and every type of hoof injury or issue that cows acquire every day on the farm. The Smart Block has proven itself superior to farmers and trimmers across the globe, and is the preferred therapeutic blocking solution to those that want to give their lame cows the very best opportunity for a comfortable and accelerated path to complete recovery.
