If you have a keen interest and keeping a profitable, well managed herd, we will work alongside you to aim to get the best results. Many of our vets have a keen interest in beef work with some coming from beef farms themselves, therefore have a good understanding of the trails and tribulations that happen along the way. A ‘one fit all’ approach doesn’t work and needs to be tailored to your farm and needs. Please contact us to discuss any aspect of beef farming with our vets.
