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 shears seem well made and work well.

After buying many pairs of trimming shears from the local farm store I decided to finally buy these. They were everything I hoped for. Cut down my time in the barn trimming goat hoofs by 1/2. Sharp, lightweight, and gets the job done. Premier’s shipping is fast also.

I had been wasting my money on cheap shears before. I didn’t realize what good shears were until I got these.

My wife and I are in our mid sixties so when we tip a ewe to trim her feet I need shears that work fast and efficient and these ARS shears do the job.
They fit nicely in your hand, they are long enough, sharp enough and have a good angle to get a nice even cut with out messing around.
