In previous seasons the Veterinary Centre has been able to secure funding to cover the lab fee component of BVD screening of beef cattle herds. This year this initiative has been extended so that during pregnancy testing visits our vets are now able to take a set of samples from the herd and have them screened for BVD at no charge to the farmer. This gives our practice the unique opportunity of effectively mapping our entire district for prevalence of BVD in practically all the beef herds in our district. This information will be invaluable in guiding our veterinarians and farms in the make up of BVD control plans. If you have any questions just talk to one of our beef pregnancy testing team. There is nothing required from the farmer except to give permission to take the samples, our team will take care of the entire process and provide you with the results for your herd.
