HeiferWise – Heifer Management and Production Services
A well-managed rearing program underpins good heifer reproductive performance and future lactation performance of your herd. Implementing an effective heifer rearing plan is vital to your farm’s future profitability.
While some farmers choose to outsource their heifer rearing, many have the land and resources available to do it themselves. HeiferWise is The Vet Group’s growth and health program to make your heifer rearing easy, efficient and rewarding.
There are several components of the HeiferWise program we can deliver, depending on your farm goals, available resources and opportunity for improvement.
The HeiferWise two-day training course is delivered by vets with years of experience. Within a small group of farmers we cover in-depth discussion and practical sessions on:
- Weight monitoring
- Nutritional management
- Parasite control
- Vaccination protocols
- Mineral nutrition
- Reproductive management
- Pre-calving management
HeiferWise Field Guide
Our HeiferWise team have developed a practically orientated field guide to deliver the critical information you need out in the field in an easy to read format.
Our team of trained technicians along with the latest and most efficient weighing equipment can weigh your heifers easily and efficiently. Monitor your heifers so you can keep their growth on track to meet target weights for mating.
That quotation “What gets measured gets done, what gets measured and fed back gets done well, what gets rewarded gets repeated” is definitely true for heifers. We can analyse your heifer’s weight gains, reproductive performance and disease occurrence and help you plan for improvements in the future.
Through The Vet Group’s relationship with Gallagher and Landmark Timboon, we are able to offer great pricing on the latest and greatest weighing equipment from Gallagher.
