We offer the Scottish Animal Health Planning System (SAHPS). This user friendly, web-based scheme enables us to construct health plans for your farm. Both the farmer & vet can access & update the health plan online. You can add notes & set health plan review dates. This scheme aims to drive herd/flock health, highlight areas for improvement & improve production. There are also farm assurance templates.
In September 2015, a farm walk was organised by The Simmental Society, SAC Consulting & hosted by our clients Bob & Jim Cook, with their pedigree Simmentals. A discussion on ‘Key Performance Indicators for a successful suckler herd and acheiving good health status with an emphasis on BVD & Johnes diseases’. George Caldow (BVM & S, MSc, Cert CHP Dip ECBHM MRCVS FRAgS), Veterinary Manager of the SAC’s Premium Cattle Health Scheme & Ian Pritchard (BSc Agri Hons Animal Science), Health Scheme Manager attended & gave presentations. A farm walk was conducted around the pedigree Simmental herd followed by light refreshments on the farm on Golden Cap, an outstanding area of natural beauty, with kind permission of National Trust.
