All of our vets have dairy training with several having additional skills in specialised areas to assist you in animal health and production and the smooth running of your business.
We employ Vets not Techs for all our dairy work so you can be assured of sound advice and can cater for those “While you’re here” moments.
We also have a firm belief in extending education to farm staff and are actively involved in providing training in all aspects of dairy health and reproduction.
