Veterinary Services are a very important consideration for a Livestock Farmer, whereby the
relationship with your Vet is vital.
As a co-operative we do have
accounts set-up with some Veterinary Practices / Groups, although our aim is to
remain as independent as possible and not overly involve ourselves – as this
may concern some Vets.
We can also purchase
Veterinary Medicines on your behalf.
How We Work
· Bench marking may
be done upon request for specific products for members.
· If we do not have
an account with your vet, but you do decide to purchase POM-V medicines through
the group - we are able to source POM-V products from 1 of 2 alternative
· A prescription
would be required from your Vet – for which there is likely to be a fee – (usually
~£12 - £20).
Lameness and Mastitis – preventing these in Cattle are not only important
for the animal’s welfare, but also for production and cost efficiencies.
Quite often during the summer
months there are Bulk Buy deals on Teat Sealants.
We can also source other hoof
related products from specialist suppliers:
· Animal Health
sundries may also include our purchasing Hoof Blocks, various brands of glue
(such as Bovibond, Moo Gloo), mixing tips and bandages.
· Foot baths such
as Healthy Hooves 101 and Kling On Blue are popular
Examples of Veterinary Groups
we deal with are as follows:
- Westpoint Farm
- Farmacy (Vet
- Garth Pig
- Stowe Veterinary
- Green Counties
Livestock and Veterinary Services – such as visits,
consultations and lab fees do not incur a levy fee.
