We have several mobile ultrasound scanners for accurate pregnancy diagnosis and fertility work. We can not only diagnose pregnancy, but also offer a wide range of modern fertility treatments and synchrnoisation programmes to get your cows back in calf quickly. We offer thorough investigation of any herd fertility problems.
We have experienced vets who can offer accurate fertility testing of bulls or tups. Though true infertility is rare, more than 1 in 5 bulls in the UK are sub-fertile. Sub-fertile bulls and tups drain profits by extending calving/lambing periods and increasing non-pregnant culls. We have electro-ejaculator equipment which is a quick, safe method of collecting semen. A heated microscope allow rapid on farm feedback with further examination at our in house lab allowing results within 24 hours.
We have two vets fully trained to deliver the AHDB mastitis control plan (MCP). The AHDB MCP is a proven, structured, evidence-based, nationwide approach to mastitis prevention and control in dairy cattle. So be it an increase in clinical cases, somatic cell count or simply a case of 'fine tuning' your mastitis control we can help you reduce the impact of this costly disease. For further information please click here, or speak to Alistair McClelland or Rebecca McDonald.
All veterinary medicines are available during normal surgery opening hours and by prior arrangement outwith these times. We recieve daily deliveries to ensure we have sufficient stock to meet your needs. By prior arrangement and when we are in your area drugs can be delivered FREE to your door.
We have two in house Mobility Mentors that offer the AHDB dairy Healthy Feet Programme (DHFP). The DHFP aims to help dairy farmers reduce the number of lame cows on their farms by identifying and applying the right management techniques. One part of this is mobility scoring which is being requested by milk producers as part of health planning and may soon become compulsory.
