Felco Australia  offers a new range of hoof clippers designed to ensure safety during hoof shearing work in stock.

Wet conditions are increasing hoof trimming work among sheep, goat and alpaca farmers. Traditional hand trimmers require a lot of physical effort to get the job done in addition to causing painful soft tissue injuries in the hands, forearms and wrists of the user.

Hoof clippers from the Swiss manufacturer, Felco are available in hand-operated and powered models that reduce the effort involved in hoof shearing while offering high levels of safety for the user and the stock. Felco 50 hoof shears are hand-operated hoof clippers while Felco 800M hoof shears are electric hoof clippers.

  • Slim and highly manoeuvrable blades for easier cutting action
  • Available in rotating handle and fixed handle (Felco 51) models
