Herd Health Planning

A healthy herd is a happy and productive herd. Our herd health planning services will ensure your stock stay healthy and that your productivity rates reflect your business objectives.

We tailor herd health plans to your unique circumstances. Our services include ongoing assessment and data analysis. As a result, we can recommend husbandry and management solutions that will increase wellbeing and yield.

Laboratory Testing

Our in-house laboratory is equipped to perform an extensive range of diagnostic tests. From blood tests and disease diagnosis through to coccidia and worm egg counts, we provide an efficient service and fast results.

Fertility Services

Low fertility rates can damage your business and disrupt the calving pattern. Our cattle fertility services address issues you may be facing with low fertility and help maximise conception rates and also profit.

We provide a wide spectrum of fertility services ranging from pre-purchase examinations, pelvic measurements for beef heifers and nutrition advice, through to AI, testing and electro-ejaculation procedures so we can collect and test bull semen. We can also perform bull vasectomies.
