Special Application | Hoof clippers

Successfully clipping the hooves of sheep and goats requires confidence, control and precision on your part. To achieve this you’re looking for comfort, efficiency, durability, easily replaceable parts, and shears that routinely and consistently deliver on all of these requirements. We don’t mean to bleat, but these FELCO 51 hoof clippers have the only pedigree you’ll need - with a design based on the admired FELCO 8 shears – as well as the advantage of a XYLAN® coating on the blades that aids the ongoing fight against infection.

Sheep and goats… Your job is to cut their hooves; theirs is to resist and make your job as difficult as possible. With the FELCO 51 hoof clippers at least you can rely totally upon the very best tool for your side of the bargain. Ergonomic might not be a term that any of your livestock will understand, but you will enjoy the exceptional comfort of these shears that are based on the enduring FELCO 8 model. An angled cutting head, along with the handle shape - which specifically optimises the force you are able to apply - delivers a precise clean cut that will quickly prove successful with even the most stubborn animal; while the XYLAN® coating on the blades keeps the tool cleaner and cuts the risk of infection. The FELCO 51 hoof clippers are designed to deal with the most challenging cutting tasks – and equally difficult sheep and goats.
