Animal Health Plans
The Vet Group philosophy is that preventive programs are highly effective and save on expensive treatments when things go wrong. They are able to be organised when it suits, they minimise animal health losses, they are cost effective and they make the running of the farm a lot smoother.
Planning for the right interventions tailored to an individual farm becomes part of the normal annual program. Our dairy vets are assigned to individual farms so that there is an ongoing understanding of the farm business, its historic animal health issues and its performance goals.
An annual review of performance across all aspects of animal husbandry including milk quality, reproduction and replacement stock rearing provides an opportunity for one of our team to review the year and plan for future interventions. Vaccinations, drenching, trace element supplements, mating programs, bull management and milk quality will all have the potential to reduce losses
