ABOUT RILEY BUILT
Since 1971, Riley Built has provided hoof trimmers with the tools and education necessary to get the job done correctly and efficiently.
Bill Riley learned hoof trimming from the very best. He first started under the tutelage of his brother in 1969, in Chino, CA, learning the craft on a stand-up chute. A few years later, he was taken under the wing of legendary craftsman Buster Burrows also working alongside Nick Dolieslager and Bob Jackson who all had been trimming since the 1920’s.
Despite this wealth of knowledge and training, Bill knew the tools he used for trimming weren’t exactly right and set out to solve the problem of making a trimmer’s job easier. Eleven chutes and 21 years later, he finally built one that he felt was right for the cows and the trimmer.
HOOF TRIMMING CHUTES & EDUCATION
Riley Built began offering these hoof trimming chutes due to a large demand and started training others on how to use them and improve their hoof trimming skills.
Today, aspiring hoof trimmers can learn from the best through Riley Built Hoof Trimming Schools and improve their use of Riley Built chutes, equipment, and hoof trimming capabilities. Riley Built Hoof Trimming Schools are regionally located for the convenience of the trainee.
