What can your rural vet do for you ?

Cattle need to be handled in a well constructed crush (race)

Animals should be kept calm in the holding pens. The animals should not be overcrowded.

A cattle crush for adult cattle should not exceed an internal width of 70cm. Exceeding this results in cattle being able to turn around. This often leads to cattle falling, which may result in injuries and sometimes even deaths possibly resulting from this.

Unique individual identification is very important for accurate record keeping and financial control.

In livestock farming it is critical to have groups of uniform female animals. Heifers should be of uniform weight and age in order to increase reproduction efficacy, nutritional and medicinal management.
