Routine Fertility Work / Scanning

These involve more than just PD’ing– at these visits we will diagnose and treat a variety of fertility problems to get your cows back in calf as soon as possible. Our farm vets all carry portable ultrasound scanners to give you the most thorough service possible.  We regularly undertake synchronisation programs in dairy heifers and beef cattle to assist with breeding and calving management. 

 

Health Planning

Health plans are required for all farm assurance schemes but they are also a great tool to make sure you monitor current and potential disease or production issues on your farm. They also include appropriate vaccination programs and protocols to deal with and prevent the common problems you encounter.

 

Interherd Plus Monitoring

We can monitor and analyse herd performance - in areas such as fertility, individual somatic cell counts and clinical mastitis, production and nutrition parameters -   using data from your milk recording.

 

Mastitis & Lameness Investigations

Lameness investigations – from individual animals to whole herd or flock investigations.

Mastitis Investigations – if you are experiencing increased levels of clinical mastitis, high SCC’s or just want to evaluate your mastitis risk factors we can use your milk recording data and also visit to assess the areas of cow management involved in mastitis control.

 

Disease Screening

We can assist you with health scheme membership (eg Premium Cattle Health Scheme, Premium Sheep and Goat Health Scheme, Scottish Government BVD Eradication Scheme)

 

Bull Breeding Soundness Examinations &Tup Fertility Testing

The benefits of using a bull or tup of known fertility are obvious.  Significant numbers (around 20%) of bulls and tups are either subfertile or infertile and testing them before your breeding season or soon after purchase will allow you to achieve maximum conception rates and improve profits.

 

Advice and Supply of Routine Medications (Wormers, Fly Control etc)

Conflicting advice from many sources can lead to inappropriate worm and fluke dosing regimes.  Parasite resistance to common dosing products is an increasing problem and making sure you use a suitable product at the right time and the correct dose will help lower the chances of resistance on your farm. In addition, avoiding unnecessary dosing will save you money!
