Part­ner­ship to ad­vance dairy farm­ing

Matamata Chronicle - - News -

Waikato ve­teri­nary group Anexa/ An­i­mal Health Cen­tre is work­ing with DairyNZ to im­prove dairy farm busi­nesses through the de­vel­op­ment of an ad­vi­sory ser­vice busi­ness model for vet clin­ics.

In the Au­gust is­sue of In­side Dairy, the com­pany said that vets’ un­der­stand­ing of an­i­mal health and per­for­mance made them ideal to work along­side farm­ers and farm staff through­out DairyNZ pro­grammes tar­get­ing re­pro­duc­tion, mas­ti­tis or lame­ness im­prove­ments.

Anexa/ An­i­mal Health Cen­tre al­ready has a num­ber of ad­vi­sory vets with Andy Collier and Ka­t­rina Roberts full-time and many other vets com­bin­ing clin­i­cal work with ad­vi­sory work.

The cen­tre has vets trained as In Calf ad­vis­ers, Health Hoof ad­vis­ers and Ad­vanced Mas­ti­tis ac­cred­ited providers.

‘‘ This pilot part­ner­ship with DairyNZ will en­able us to fur­ther de­velop our re­sources in this area with the goal re­main­ing to be an ef­fec­tive valu­able ad­vi­sor to all clients,’’ chief ex­ec­u­tive Terry Young­man said.

‘‘Our dairy clients can ben­e­fit hugely from this im­proved ser­vice,’’ he said.
