ARS Hoof Trimmers and Shears—Quick Comparison

Length—How to choose?The shape and length of the handles help determine the hand strength required to squeeze the trimmer. Maximum leverage isn’t always desired; many shepherds prefer comfortable trimmers that fit their hands for all day use.
- Longer blades may reduce the # of overall cuts needed; blades longer than 2" can clear most hooves with one cut
- Shorter blades are better for precision work

These trimmers are the best and come so sharp they cut through thick tough sheep hooves. And what is even better is that Premier can resharpen them. Worth every penny!

These trimmers are the gold standard in my opinion. I have the serrated and now the straight—both are great. It's easier to sharpen the straight ones. These will rust, be sure to keep them lightly oiled after use and cleaning.

Nice clippers! They work better than plain edge ones do.

I have been using ARS trimmers to correctly trim sheep and goat feet for decades. When I was no longer able to purchase them from China, I asked Premier 1 to see if they could get them. These trimmers fit both left handed and right handed users, they remain sharp for a very long time, and they are the right size and weight for most of us to use. As a veterinarian teaching owners how to trim feet on sheep and goats, these are my go-to hooftrimmer.

We found the serrated trimmer to be excellent, better than non-serrated trimmers we have used in the past.
