Infectious Disease Monitor

FarmVets SouthWest are launching a new disease monitor.

We offer testing for five of the biggest infectious diseases affecting herds.

By knowing the relevant disease levels on your farm, we can offer the most current advice to help plan for a profitable future.

Key reasons to act...
