Our team of farm vets are dedicated to helping you face the challenges of modern farming, alongside keeping your animals in good health. After all, keeping your livestock healthy is the key to maximum productivity.
Whether you’re a pedigree breeder, commercial producer or small holder, our vets are on hand to help you. Our team of farm vets have a wealth of experience and are able to share knowledge to keep abreast of new developments, and to help with the management of difficult cases. With at least three farm vets on call every night we are confident we can respond to your emergencies promptly, whenever you might need us.
Our services include, but are not limited to :
Herd/flock health management
To get the most from your flock of animals, you can speak to us at Galedin for advice on how to keep them in the peak of health. This means that you will have access to advice on preventative treatment for your animals, nutrition and biosecurity, as well as forewarning of any seasonal problems.
Pregnancy diagnosis, scanning and fertility tests (including bull and tup)-
Effectively managing the fertility of your stock is crucial to your farm’s profitability. We have the most up-to-date cattle ultrasound scanner and our vets are extremely experienced in early pregnancy diagnosis and prompt identification of reproductive problems. Bull and tup fertility should also be assessed, either to ensure a successful lambing or calving season, or pre-sale.
Cattle and sheep export and AVI work
If you are looking to export cattle both locally and regionally, an export health certificate will be needed. In order to obtain one of these certificates, cattle and sheep must pass various health and safety regulations.
Our vets have a wealth of experience ensuring that animals are fit for travel and will then administer export health certificates for you.
Mastitis investigations on dairy farms
As you are aware, mastitis on a dairy farm can become a huge strain on productivity. Whether a low grade irritation causing raised cell counts, or a full blown breakdown, you’ll benefit from a thorough farm visit from our vets to analyse areas for improvement and help you have the greatest benefit in reducing the incidences of mastitis in your herd.
You may wish to de-horn your cattle, sheep or goats for safety reasons. Our vets can carry out this procedure for you and reduce the risk of injury to both you and the animal. Similar to castration, de-horning is recommended at a young age.
Brucellosis, TB and Anthrax
All our farm vets are LVIs and are involved in routine monitoring for Tuberculosis, Brucellosis and Anthrax.
Advanced embryo transfer science
At Galedin Veterinary, we are proud to make use of the most modern embryo transfer techniques available. This allows an accelerated improvement in genetics by taking fertilised embryos flushed from the very best pedigree cows and fertilising them with semen from the very best bulls. These embryos will then be implanted into cattle of your choice. Meticulous planning and attention to the health status when screening recipients are key to success with this procedure.
You should arrange a visit from us six months before you plan to start an embryo transfer programme, so that we can develop a plan to help you achieve the very best results.
