Dargaville Veterinary Centre offers Heifergain. The goal of the Heifergain service is to ensure all dairy heifers reach the their target weights at calving, by consistent monitoring and ensuring any treatments (ie drenching, copper, selenium and vaccinations etc) are done to maximise growth rates and the job gets done. Any animals that are not up to target weight are pulled aside for extra care.
With Heifergain, you sit down together with your local vet and work out a detailed animal health plan. Take the stress out of rearing your young stock and at the same time get a fixed monthly rate to ensure your goals are met. A fixed rate means you are paying only for the product used, while Dargaville Vet Centre supplies the people and gear to ensure the job gets done.
