Why a Double-slope?

The new double-slope design gives the cow the maximum lift on her injury with the use of a thinner block. It gives almost 20% more lift on the ulcer and white line zones than a conventional .075” block. The double slope gives the cow a better gait while walking on a block… she will put the block more directly under her hock or knee, which gives her more stability and gives the injury more rest due to less stretching of the cells while walking- which leads to faster healing.

Earth Friendly.

Tested. Results. Loved.

“Blocks improve healing by removing the pressure from the affected foot. This reduced pressure allows the wound to heal by reducing tension that pulls cells apart, thereby enabling horn cells to grow and close the sole defect.”

– Gerard Cramer, DVM, DVSc

Day 1 Out of the Chute

Day 12 Out of the Chute

“This was a late evening emergency stop. This cow was holding her foot above her head when trying to walk. First video is of her leaving the chute immediately following treatment and block, second video of cow exiting front of chute was 12 days after treatment. The herdsman said she walked that good after the 2nd day. Have had super good results with these blocks. Seems like cows get immediate relief. Thank you Smart Block.”

From the Field

I think [Pink Block] is ahead of its time because nobody has matched the Original as of yet. The locomotion with these is insane. The cows don't even know it's there. The hype hasn't wore off yet. I've blocked some bad ulcers and some really nasty white lines at an in-house herd and these cows bounce back to good locomotion day 1. They can really cruise on these; low impact on the biomechanics.

I am really happy with the new design. For white lines and sole ulcers it is awesome. I love the universal fit and it gives me the lift I want to heal cows quickly while minimizing trauma to the animal due to the thinner design.

I was recently introduced to these blocks and it's like a whole other world has opened up for cows and their quality of life!! My brother, Garrett Dow, gave me some to take back to NM with me. I paid some visits to a handful of dairies in my local area looking for new accounts and very excited to share this new information with these farmers. It takes a true hoof trimmer to appreciate the impact that these blocks are going to make, I think they're out of this world and hope dairy farmers truly see there is a lot of thought and compassion for cow comfort in each one of these products!!! You definitely have my support! It's as if these blocks are saying, "Let's Make Locomotion Great Again!" Thank You Guys!!!
