We are delighted to announce the launch of our Dairy Health Monitor Service.
What will the Dairy Health Tracker provide?
The Dairy Health Tracker will provide custom infectious disease monitoring that is targeted to each individual farm.
How will monitoring be carried out?
The monitoring will be carried out through a combination of regular bulk milk testing (arranged through National Milk Laboratories) and blood sampling of young stock once yearly. The testing regime will differ depending on what diseases we are monitoring for.
For each package the monthly cost includes all testing costs including blood sampling young stock once-a-year.
Example testing regime:
|Full Monitoring Service|
|BVD||Bulk milk PCR||Bi-annually|
|IBR||Bulk milk antibody||Bi-annually|
|Leptospirosis||Bulk milk antibody||Bi-annually|
|Liver Fluke||Bulk milk antibody||Once-yearly post housing|
|All of the above||Young stock blood sampling x 5||Once-yearly post housing|
How much will it cost?
The cost of the Dairy Health Tracker will be spread over a 12 month period with a monthly fee (payable by direct debit) that is dependent on the number of diseases monitored. Please see below for example pricing;
