Health and Welfare

This section of the website contains a variety of information and resources to help cattle farmers maximise the health and welfare of the animals in their care.

QMS also holds a numbers of free workshops and events throughout the year for farmers to improve their knowledge on a range of animal health issues. visit the events page for further information of forthcoming events in your area.

Disease prevention is better than cure and a herd health plan, written in colaboration between the farmer, vet and advisor, can produce real benefits to the herd and to the economics of the farm business. The feature on the right hand side highights how one Dumfriesshire farmer's business has benefited from developing a health plan.
