Read more >Wednesday 15th of May 2019: Spore counts are still in the danger zone, they are not dropping as some have expected despite the weather having cooled off a bit, there is still active spore growth occurring. Risk mitigation, monitoring and treatment programs should continue until the spore counts have reduced to low levels on your farm.
Remember zinc boluses only last 6 weeks, so if your spore cunts are high and week weeks has passed your stock will be at risk. Do a pasture spore count on your place and make an informed decision about what to do next.
We are still responding to clinical cases, a lot of these end up being put down as the liver damage is considered too severe.
Read more >Thursday 20th of December 2018: Are you planning to pregnancy scan your cattle this year?
If so, we need to confirm your bull dates as soon as possible to make sure we test on the best day to suit you and your herd.
Scanning at the correct time after bull withdrawal can add value. Getting the timing right will enable us to identify late pregnancies, to age pregnancies, to scan into cycles or to identify twins.
If you are a Dairy Farmer and would like to use Infovet for recording, reporting and automatic uploading to LIC/CRV please give us a call so we can set up the system for your farm.
To ensure we can scan your cows at the optimal time please book in as soon as possible.
