DAIRY CATTLE  

 
Routine visits 
 
We tailor routine visits to the needs of each farm. This can be on a weekly, fortnightly or monthly basis depending on the size of the herd.  
 
Each farm is assigned a dedicated vet. We examine cows for pregnancy diagnosis, post-natal checks and non-seen bullers. Our routine contract clients also benefit from discounted medicines and visits.  
 
We use the newest ultrasound technology and all our farm vets attend regular training to keep up to date with the newest developments and technologies. Helen Cockerill holds a Diploma in Bovine Reproduction.
