Shepton Veterinary Group

We regularly hold a range of farmer meetings, discussion groups, farm visits and training courses tailored to our clients’ individual needs. This allows us to improve your skill set and knowledge on issues relevant to your farm.

We run a DAISY recording bureau to manage information for your herd, providing you with action lists such as cows due to calve or dry off, cows suitable for service, cows for your vet visit. We can also manage your calf passport applications, medicine and movement records.

Together, the DAISY service and our recording software allow us to analyse your fertility and disease incidence, identifying areas of strength and opportunity. Using this, we regularly provide benchmarking information to our clients, and can provide a monthly Milk Alert © report to further improve the utilisation of farm information.

We believe in having a simple, transparent price structure that is fair to all our clients. We are committed to providing you with the most competitive medicine prices and regularly review these to ensure that we always offer the most cost effective medicines.

All of our work is charged on a time basis, so the more organised you can be on farm, the better value we are!
