Flock and herd health planning is a major part of a farm vets’ work here at Alnorthumbria. It is probably the most cost effective service we offer to our clients with potentially huge savings from using the best management practices.
Health planning can be a formal meeting producing a printed health plan but could also be advice given to combat or control a particular disease conducted at any time. Most of our working days include giving advice on preventing conditions and diseases; all this is health planning.
We believe that prevention is much better than cure and much less costly. Once an animal is sick you have already lost production and incurred costs of treatment or, in the worst cases, disposal of a dead animal. We use an annual review to go through management and preventative measures that can be implemented on your farm. It’s often the most interesting and productive day of the year.
If you need an update, call us to arrange a meeting and let’s see what we can achieve.
