SUMMARY Herd level assessments of claw health status were performed in 8 Hungarian dairy cattle herds. The locomotion and body condition were scored in 2663 animals. The prevalence and severity of lameness varied among herds. There was a negative correlation the between body condition score and locomotion score. Digital dermatitis was the most important hoof problem in the assessed herds. On the basis of the results, there are several factors associated with poor claw health, the most important ones are: lack of early detection of lame animals, improper foot bathing protocol, delay in the treatment of lame animals, poor environmental hygiene and poor cow comfort.
