We are a group of progressive and forward thinking dairy vets working alongside our clients to improve animal health, welfare and long term business profitability.

Our ultimate aim is to provide a personal and professional service to our range of varied and thriving dairy systems. We are a one-stop-shop for dairy animal health needs including;

  • Fertility clinics
  • Herd health planning
  • Milking audits and mastitis trouble shooting
  • Dry cow and milking cow nutritional trouble shooting
  • Youngstock disease monitoring and management
  • Foot trimming and lameness management
  • Antibiotic usage audits
  • Genomic testing
  • Routine surgeries including laparoscopic LDAs
  • All routine and day to day veterinary work and a 24 hour emergency service

Good fertility is an essential part of running a profitable dairy herd. At Belmont we are passionate about delivering a high quality and affordable routine fertility service to our dairy clients. Each farm has an allocated routine vet ultrasound scanning so that clients maximise the benefits from this service.

Good dairy herd fertility starts with excellent transition management with a ration designed to minimise milk fever and maximise dry matter intake. We are very familiar with putting in place and monitoring fresh cow programs to assess transition success. We use this farm data to visualise trends and work with the farms nutritionist to improve ration formulation.

We are frequently analysing on-farm and milk recording data to examine fertility performance in detail using TotalVet, Interherd and DairyComp 305.

We work with block calving and year round calving herds and our approach is tapered to be system specific.

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.

Our structured health planning process is built to identify areas for improvement, develop aims and create bespoke protocols to deliver progress on farm. We work alongside our clients to hit the targets set in milk contracts for a range of milk buyers; from large supermarket buyers to local family creameries.

Benchmarking is often used to highlight areas of success and those for improvement across our dairy herds using milk recording data or data gathered on farm.
The genomic testing of bulls is now a widely accepted standard and has accelerated genetic improvement in the Holstein breed over the last decade.

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.

Clarifide is a 30K SNP test that offers users:
  • Full UK and US type, health and production PTAs
  • Composite indexes; PLI, NM, TPI, and more
  • Assessment of fertility haplotypes
  • Assessment of over 20 recessive genetic diseases
  • Sire ID confirmation
  • Accurate genomic inbreeding values
  • And so much more to come in health and fitness traits!
