Coast2Coast Vet Polly Gray BVM&S MRCVS is leading our Flock Health Club that was launched in January 2017.
The Flock Health Club is run for commercial, pedigree and small holder flocks. Each club will include members who have similar enterprises and share the desire to reach optimal health productivity for their farm or small holding.
Flock Health Plan
The Flock Health Plan is created with benchmarking data where possible and on farm health and management information gathering. This is used to create a farm-specific, practical and user friendly document that highlights the most important areas that may need adjustments in order to reach the optimal health and productivity for your flock.
There will be quarterly vet facilitated meetings to discuss timely and topical health issues. These meetings will also provide a platform for farmers to get together and discuss their experiences. Our meetings will sometimes involve expert external speakers and will include up-to-date practical information and advice.
This initiative aims to create a more affordable close communication between sheep farmers and their vets. Alongside the meetings and Flock Health Plan, there is a relationship between the members and their vet that means health or production issues can be resolved efficiently. There are discounts on all laboratory costs and postmortems as well as services offered such as ram fertility.
