Farm Veterinary Services
We are recognised leaders of farm veterinary services in the UK. We have recently won the British Dairying Cream Award partly for our wide range of clinical farm service. This is also due to our team of enthusiastic and passionate vets who have extensive experience working exclusively for farmers, which means that your livestock are in the most capable hands.
Our dedicated team of farm vets carry out a broad range of clinical work each day. This includes routine fertility visits, herd / flock health planning, infectious disease management and clinical diagnosis. We also have a specialist TB team who undertake all TB work. Our vets are backed up by our fantastic support team who ensure calls run smoothly and on time therefore minimising disruption to your working day. In addition to this, our leading VetTech team work in conjunction with vets on farm to maintain a high level of animal health and productivity. Read more about our VetTech service.
We are development partners of a farm data management system called VetImpress to analyse and process herd and individual cow data. The system allows us to see the performance data of a cow from birth through to lactation and beyond. This helps us pinpoint successes and overcome problems on farm. Our team are able to assist in all relevant areas of farm health management through efficient screening and processing. In addition to VetImpress, we have use of all the top data management tools for farm business including Dairy Comp 305, TotalVet, Interherd, Uniform Agri, Moomonitor and Silent Herdsman. We integrate and work closely with CIS, NMR and QMMS to help develop the service available to you.
Our suite of bespoke analysis tools takes you beyond conventional health scheme requirements and positions you for the best contracts in the market. We constantly develop these offerings and are particularly proud of our ground breaking VetInvest report. This report helps you improve how efficiently you are using the practice and our farm veterinary services.
Today more focus is being placed on the importance of mobility by supermarkets and processors. This is because it’s an area that can have underlying effects on herd productivity. To help you monitor mobility, we offer fortnightly and monthly mobility scoring from our VetTech team. They can produce a foot check report and have a number of mobility mentors in the team who help run our Healthy Feet programme.
