completing a course on the Dutch Method Aaron continued to study the anatomy and bone structure of
the bovine hoof to refine his hoof trimming style, called “The Balance Method”. In 2014 Aaron founded
Midwestern Hoof Trimming School and has since been requested to consult for large dairy farms
worldwide. Aaron has trained hundreds of hoof trimmers globally with various skill sets, from beginners
to veteran professionals, on The Balance Method. He has been selected to speak at conferences and
