A hoof trimmer, hoof-care consultant and instructor, Burgi travels throughout the world teaching hoof health and lameness prevention, while consulting with dairy producers to minimize lameness. After working in the dairy industry for many years, he chose to specialize in hoof health and launched his full-time hoof trimming business, Comfort Hoof Care Inc., in 1989. He quickly realized the industry needed equipment to safely and practically restrain cattle while performing accurate hoof care. He invented the Accu-trim® Leg Restraint System, featured on all Comfort Chutes, to achieve the optimum heel-to-toe view of the hoof. Today, Karl continues to provide hoof care services to small and large farms in south-central Wisconsin. His passion for cows fueled his desire to to continue his education on hoof care by attending schools and conferences, and networking with researchers around the world.
