Our experienced farm team provide a fully comprehensive service for dairy farmers working in Northamptonshire and the surrounding counties. If you would like to discuss what we can offer your business, please do not hesitate to contact our team.
Our team provide a range of fertility treatments with dairy farms in mind. These services include pregnancy diagnosis, embryo transfer and cow checks post calving. Having regular fertility visits to your herd may reduce the ‘calving to conception’ intervals and detect early uterine infections post calving. With our portable ultrasound scanner we can provide dairy farmers with accurate information so they can manage their herd more efficiently. We also offer bull breeding examinations before the season and pre-purchase, ensuring the bull is up to the job you require of him!
Mastitis and cell counts
Towcester Farm Vets are proud to offer our dairy farmers the Dairy Co Mastitis Control Plan. This plan evaluates the environment, parlour routine and housing of your cows. We can also perform parlour assessments, teat scoring and milk bacteriology to help aid treatment of individual/herd health issues. Contact our farm vets to find out more about what we can provide for your herd.
Lameness and cow comfort
Our experienced farm vets are on hand to offer advice on herd lameness, or factors within the environment or housing which may contribute to lameness issues. All of our vets are trained in the Dutch 5-step foot trimming technique which helps to re-balance and apply a curative approach to foot lesions.
Herd health management
We can help manage on farm disease control through the use of metabolic testing including milk tests, blood sampling and thorough health/nutritional assessments. We have good relationships with national laboratories to help our dairy farmers get the bests tests for their money and we encourage a proactive approach to disease control. Our team offers competitively priced vaccines programmes and herd accreditation schemes, working alongside nationwide schemes to help increase herd health in the UK. Our vets will also make use of the TotalVet and Herd Companion programmes to use milk recording data to help identify sub-clinical health issues.
We can offer metabolic profiling to monitor energy and protein levels and mineral intake of your animals. We can discuss findings with a nutritional advisor to ensure that each area of nutritional intake is being addressed.
In order to protect the future of your dairy herd, we take a proactive approach regarding vaccinations, disease monitoring, colostrum checks, in-house worm egg counts, housing advice and tailored programmes for oestrus synchronisation.
All our farm vets are Registerred OV’s (Official Veterinarians) who are able to perform TB testing for routine herd, short interval and pre-movement testing, as well as anthrax and abortion enquiries. We can also certify dairy cow exports.
