We believe that a herd health plan is not solely a document for reference, it is an ongoing conversation and relationship with the farmer and all other advisors involved on farm. Our best performing units have this holistic, team approach.
The genomic testing of bulls is now a widely accepted standard and has accelerated genetic improvement in the Holstein breed over the last decade. Genomic testing of the replacement females in your herd can now be undertaken in a commercial setting to accelerate your herds pace of genetic improvement. We are part of a group of practices in the UK that have access to the Clarifide genomic test that is world market leader.
We offer a unique, bespoke, farm specific service that analyses test results to maximise the benefits of testing. The service starts by looking at the herds genetic base and the current population and then we go on to create a farm specific plan to make the most of the test.
