Cattle

We are committed to offering an extensive service for all our cattle clients, whether they have 500 cows or just 5.  We do not charge a fee to visit our clients’ farms, within a radius of 30 miles from our surgery in Easingwold.  Our charges are usually based on time spent on the farm.

We always have two of our own veterinary surgeons on duty out of hours, ensuring attention to all emergencies by a familiar veterinary surgeon.  We regularly hold farmers’ meetings and training days to keep abreast of the latest information.  Our range of services include:

For dairy farmers:

 
 
  • Ultrasound scanning for pregnancy diagnosis.
