For our dairy clients we like to carry out a cost review every year. From experience, we expect the vet spend in a healthy well-managed dairy herd to be less than 0.8ppl. Our records will show if it’s more than this, then we work with you to find out why and reduce it. This could mean making some management changes or focusing on factors to improve udder health or fertility.
We also collaborate with the Nottingham Vet School at Sutton Bonington. Twice a year we attend a discussion group on dairy herd health, keeping up-to-date with the latest research findings. Some of our clients are also benefiting from taking part in a subsidised whole herd health review with ongoing quarterly visits to highlight problem areas and resolve them.
