Work efficiency, working with protocols, working with a schedule: everyone’s talking about it and some of them are actually doing it. A lot of things go into working successfully with a good schedule and effective standard procedures. There’s a lot more to it than putting down on paper how you want to start doing things.

ADVICE AND SUPPORT FOR DISEASE-RESISTANT MANAGEMENT
Healthy cows and calves are the basis for job satisfaction and economic results. Vetvice helps you to design the barn and the work for health, welfare and production. Preventing disease and promoting health are rarely done in isolation but should be approached in combination with the barn, barn design and all operating procedures.
TACKLING ANIMAL-ORIENTED FARM PROBLEMS
Vetvice’s vets, barn designers and farm consultants can help you tackle many farm problems. We understand the cow and her health, and the planning, organisation and management of the work on the farm. In addition, we can act as project leaders and/or discussion leaders in complicated problem-solving projects involving several parties.
