How to Groom

Step one, gather the required tools for grooming. You will need a curry comb and a hoof pick. Once you have them, take them outside.

Step two, use the curry comb. With the curry comb in hand, brush over your cattle’s coat, making it silky and smooth. This will remove excess dirt, and will also reduce the number of insects, parasites, and worms that could irritate your animal.

Step three, use a hoof pick. Scrape off the things clinging to the cattle’s hooves with the pointy part of the tool, but be careful—there might be manure and other icky things down there!

  • Grooming an animal is a very important thing to do on a farm today, but in the 1850s, it was common to only groom the milk cow and the oxen!

  • You can check for scrapes, cuts, and scratches when grooming your cattle, if those wounds are not attended to, they could become infected and cause more injuries!

  • Grooming helps keep cattle calm and docile, which is important because farmers handle these animals on a daily basis.
