Beef Cattle

Larkmead Vets is committed to working with you to improve your profitability through animal health and welfare. To achieve this, our team of experienced cattle vets will provide you with tailor-made, up-to-date, affordable health services to suit your business needs. We offer routine health monitoring and can assist you in drawing up a herd health plan to ensure health is maintained and maximum productivity achieved.

As part of the health planning service we can visit you herd and discuss all health matters, including infectious disease control and vaccination, parasite control, nutrition and biosecurity. We will also focus on production efficiency parameters (e.g. kg of calf weaned/cow/year and daily liveweight gain) to assist in achieving maximal profitability.

As well as fulfilling requirements for farm assurance schemes and organic status, the health plan can be used as a dynamic tool for daily herd management.
