Many beef operators consider foot problems to be primarily a dairy issue but as beef cattle age foot problems become more evident and unnecessary suffering can result. Too often good cattle are culled because of lameness when a simple foot maintenance regime would avoid the issue.
I also recommend "Cattle Footcare and Claw Trimming" by E. Toussaint Raven. And a series of videos on foot trimming at [...]
