Herd health services
Herd health focuses much more on preventative medicine techniques. By examining current herd performance, identifying shortfalls or risk points, implementing changes and reporting results, we can maintain a healthier happier herd or flock and greater profits for producers. Tadhg is a certificate holder in Dairy herd health from UCD. Particular focus areas include
- Mastitis investigation and controls
- Fertility performance management
- Lameness auditing and control
- Calf health planning for beef and dairy herd
- Weaning health planning
- Transition cow management and nutrition
