Fertility of the dairy herd is key to efficient production, whether you calve all year round or in a block.
We have experience and expertise in helping manage spring block, autumn block and all year round calving herds and understand the requirements to maintain submission and conception rates.
We appreciate that fertility management is not just a matter of scanning cows, and we aim to help you manage all aspects including nutrition, dry cow management, early lactation health and oestrus detection.
Using all available systems of monitoring and managing mastitis, including cell count analysis and laboratory cultures, as well as a direct approach of seeing what is going on, our mastitis control programmes will provide you with practical and effective ways to prevent new infections. We can also devise tailored treatment plans to maximise the effect of any antibiotics whilst keeping milk in the tank.
We support the AHDB Dairy Healthy Feet Programme and have Mobility Mentors as well as certified mobility scorers to ensure that your herd is not only compliant with assurance programmes but also minimises lameness and maximises mobility.
We have dedicated TB testers who work effectively and efficiently to make your TB test as painless as possible. Our incentive scheme encourages high throughputs without compromising on quality, such that you can even earn payments for efficient testing.
We can provide skilled help should you require it for recording, handling or simply helping with the paperwork.
Our dedicated and helpful TB manager, Meg, will assist in arranging tests, times, and compliance with APHA requirements.
