Beef & Dairy Cattle Services
Our veterinarians will partner with you to develop custom-tailored herd health programs to help you reach your goals.
Veterinary Client Patient Relationship (VCPR)
We are required by federal law to maintain an active Veterinary Client Patient Relationship (VCPR) with all clients. This means one of our veterinarians must be on the farm once a year at minimum to see your animals and discuss medication use, health protocols, and any other concerns in order to remain eligible to purchase prescription medications from us. Are you new to our practice and need to establish a VCPR for the first time? No worries, your VCPR establishment visit is free.
Breeding Soundness Exams
Bull breeding soundness exams are one of the best ways to ensure your bull is ready to do his job before turning him out with your cows and heifers. Our vets can help determine semen quality and motility, so there is no wondering if everything is functioning properly before it’s too late.
We stock a variety of vaccines, dewormers, antibiotics, lactating and dry cow treatments, and much more right here in our clinic, so it is quickly and conveniently available to you—no need to track it down. We also store our vaccines in coolers with remote temperature monitoring and 24-hour temperature and humidity alarms. You can be confident that any vaccines you get from us will be properly stored and clinically effective.
Dairy Herd Health Checks
One of the leading losses of production and efficiency in any dairy herd is medical expenses due to chronic disease. By maintaining regular herd checks, we can survey herds more effectively and frequently to continuously improve health protocols and other farm SOP’s to lessen disease incidence and increase animal health, welfare, and profitability. We utilize modern mobile ultrasound to make an accurate reproductive diagnosis and help you make breeding, culling, and treatment decisions to maximize your herd’s potential.
Pregnancy checking is one of the most valuable practices cattle producers can utilize to improve herd genetics and keep costs low continuously. Feeding an open cow through the winter can cost upwards of $400 per head in feed alone before factoring in land use, fuel, equipment wear and tear, and increased labor cost. Services are charged hourly. However, we find that eliminating just one open animal from your feed bill by pregnancy checking typically pays for the pregnancy check cost.
Beef Herd Health Programs
We utilize the most progressive data analysis software and reports to help keep track of the health and performance of our client herds. We can help make better culling and breeding decisions, achieve more efficient feed conversion, tighter calving seasons and improve animal health to ensure your goals are always met and your operation carries a strong reputation.
Cattle require different immunizations depending on their stage of production and environment. There is no “one-size-fits-all” vaccine protocol, and that is where we come in. Whether you are selling calves, feeding stockers, or keeping a pet, we will help you achieve your goals. We always store, transport, and administer our vaccines properly to ensure that your animals always receive a clinically effective dose.
We understand that emergencies happen, and we are equipped to help in the most cost-effective and efficient way possible. We will discuss all options and costs with you to make sure you are making the right call before we begin. From down cows, calvings, and prolapses, to weak calves, scours, DA’s, and C-sections, we’ve seen it all and are ready to help.
We partner with high standard laboratories to get accurate and timely test results. We can test for a variety of surveillance diseases such as Johnes, TB, and BLV, as well as BVD, anaplasmosis, rabies, and more.
