Veterinary Services

We are recognised leaders of farm veterinary services in the UK and have recently won the British Dairying Cream Award for our wide range of clinical farm services. Our team of enthusiastic and passionate vets have extensive experience working exclusively for farmers, which means that your livestock are in the most capable hands.
Our dedicated team of farm animal vets carry out a broad range of clinical work each day including 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 to minimise disruption to your working day.
We utilise 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, helping us pinpoint successes and overcome problems. Our team are able to assist in all relevant areas of farm health management through efficient screening and processing.
We uphold assurance compliant health planning tools, but we also enhance the planning process by utilising our own health analysis tools including antibiotic reviews, infectious disease check reports and vet spend breakdown (see VetInvest).
Today more prevalence is being placed on the importance of lameness by supermarkets and processors, and it is a cow welfare issue that is extremely costly and damaging to productivity. To help you monitor lameness we offer fortnightly and monthly mobility scoring from our VetTech team with a foot check report and have a number of mobility mentors in the team who help run our Healthy Feet programme.
Our Farmers First philosophy was developed in close liaison with our farmer advisory board. It summarises our approach to fairness, simplicity and transparency in respect to our fees and medicine prices. Through advance planning of vet work and payment at medicine collection, we are able to offer flexible savings.
We offer unique ways for our clients to monitor their vet investment as part of our transparency on pricing. VetInvest tracks your spend on a per cow basis to ensure you are getting the best return on investment possible from our services. We utilise the report to analyse spend breakdown and work together to reduce certain areas where needed.
In addition to our VetInvest report, we offer a suite of analysis tools and reports that you can utilise for monthly monitoring or periodic benchmarking. Such tools include:

  • Transition Check
  • Growth Check
  • Colostrum Check
  • Feed Check to name a few
We are the largest provider of embryo transfer services in the UK and have a wealth of experience within our UKET team. By utilising embryo transfer, you would benefit from access to our inventory database through online tools, so you can keep track of your embryos. For more information on UKET, please click here.
We hold a number of discussion groups that are open for all of our clients to join. Here we compare data which can help you benchmark and identify areas for change, as well as sharing ideas that will further improve your business efficiency. Such groups include our Flock Health and Healthy Heifer groups.
