Farm health plans can serve various functions. For some clients, this is a compulsory part of joining a health scheme for a particular disease. Health plans are tailored to suit the individual farm. Most plans will cover the following: housing, nutrition, parasite control, fertility, disease treatment and control, biosecurity, welfare and then some information on specific diseases relevant to your farm. The aim is that the plan should be accessible and useful to you throughout the year, not simply a tick-the-box exercise to be hidden away in a drawer for 12 months!
If you are interested in starting a health plan, please contact the surgery on 01786 430387 or firstname.lastname@example.org. You will be assigned a vet who will contact you with a written questionnaire initially and then arrange a time to meet up and discuss other aspects of your plan. We can also set up your health plan online using the SAC’s Animal Health Planing System (see http://www.sahps.co.uk/ fro more information).
