Herd Data Management
We use a range of platform and data sources to analyse and process herd and individual cow data. This allows us to see the performance data of a cow from birth through to lactation and beyond – very beneficial to help us pinpoint successes and overcome problems on farm. Our team are able to assist in all relevant areas of farm health management through efficient screening and processing. In addition, we have use of all the top data management tools for farm business including Dairy Comp 305, TotalVet, Interherd, Uniform Agri, Moomonitor and Silent Herdsman. We integrate and work closely with CIS, NMR and QMMS to help develop the service available to you, including a unique partnership with independent dairy consultant’s Kingshay.
Herd Health Planning
Our suite of bespoke analysis tools takes you beyond conventional health scheme requirements and positions you for the best contracts in the market. We constantly develop these offerings and are particularly proud of our ground breaking VetInvest report. This report helps you improve how efficiently you are using the practice and our farm veterinary services.
Lameness and Mobility
Today more focus is being placed on the importance of mobility by supermarkets and processors. This is because it’s an area that can have underlying effects on herd productivity. To help you monitor mobility, we provide a comprehensive mobility service called Feet First. This involved routine foot trimming, mobility scoring and environmental assessments to help reduce the level of lameness. In addition, we have a number of mobility mentors in the team who help run the AHDB Healthy Feet programme.
