Put simply, we offer an unrivalled level of expertise that keeps your herd healthy while maximising production through easy to manage contract models. But don’t just take our word for it – this is what real farmers say about our services.

We remain close to what’s happening with the cows

We use the Orchard Vets contract arrangement to make sure we get the right mix of clinical time, fortnightly routine fertility work and monthly management to discuss our data, milk recordings and nutrition. By sending our data into the vets, we remain close to what’s happening with the cows’ performance

The vet is very much part of our farm team

Our routine veterinary work, comprising a fortnightly health and fertility visit, means the vet is very much part of our farm team. This helps in many ways, in particular with the repeated close attention to monitoring the cows; promoting good health and welfare. It also helps us with forward planning – we know we will always have time to focus on and discuss specific areas when we need to.

We particularly value the discipline of carrying out a monthly evaluation

We particularly value the discipline of carrying out a monthly evaluation of the health and fertility of our dairy herd. Information is always up to date and this enables us to make better business decisions and use preventative measures wherever possible, rather than treatments
