Herd Health

By |

We offer services to help review and design herd health programs for livestock.  This includes vaccination recommendations, deworming programs, pregnancy checks, supplement and feed recommendations, and breeding soundness exams.  We work with many producers on a variety of species including, cattle, buffalo, sheep, goats and deer.  We work with both large and small herds (no herd is too small), and enjoy the relationship we build with our herd owners.  We look forward to seeing you and your livestock.  

Breeding Soundness Exam

By |

Because bulls are so crucial to a cow calf operation, we recommend them receiving a breeding soundness exam annually.  This includes a physical exam, sperm evaluation, and test for tritrichomonas*.  We send our trich tests to the Texas Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory for PCR testing for quick and accurate results, with pooling bulls as an option.  We evaluate the sperm in house for motility and morphology to ensure your bulls are in prime condition for the breeding season.  Vaccinations, deworming, and other treatments can be done at the same time for your convenience.

* Texas Animal Health Commission and Texas law require a negative trich test on all non-virgin bulls prior to selling or leasing unless heading to slaughter.  If you have a question about this law, please call us and we’ll help you determine if your bull needs to have a trich test prior to selling him.
