BECOMING A PROFESSIONAL HOOFTRIMMER
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. Due to a large demand, Bill began selling these hoof trimming chutes and started training others on how to use them for the best hoof trimming experience and results possible.
