Annual health screening needs to be followed up with action.

Scanned a herd of dairy cows this morning outside Fermoy where pregnancy rate was very poor.  Discussion with the farmer as to the reasons behind same revealed that he had a milk sample tested recently and the client had no understanding of the results of same.  He showed  me a copy and I was astounded by the high readings of IBR and BVD. There was no vaccination programme in place on the farm.  I advised him strongly to get a sample taken immediately to test for the virus in the herd and to identify any Pi’s and remove them from the herd.

This begs the question : are we providing a service whereby testing is completed but there is no follow through in terms of communication with the client.  Subsequent action is needed to rectify this problem.
