As dairy and beef farmers, you live with your stock every day of the year and probably see more of them than your family!. Because of this closeness and familiarity with your stock you could miss certain points that might be fairly obvious to someone seeing them not so often.

This could mean things like weight changes, general cow condition, mineral deficiencies etc. In our opinion, it is a good thing that your feed supplier looks at your stock on his visits, to see if he can spot any changes within the herd since his last visit. This may seem fairly fundamental but you may be surprised at what a different eye can spot!.

If you would like any of our staff to look at your stock, if they don't already, ask them to put their wellies on and get them dirty!
