Importantly, consult with your veterinarian about how Biotangents diagnostics can help your farm.
Rapid diagnosis is essential to disease management and monitoring
Screen new animals before introducing them to your herd
Many infectious diseases are introduced into herds via disease-carrying animals. By only buying disease-free cattle, the likelihood of disease outbreaks is substantially reduced.
Monitor for disease, and secure disease-free status
A rigorous disease monitoring regime allows you to secure disease-free status, boosting the sale value of your herd.
Reduce disease, increase production
Many diseases reduce animal productivity, via milk production, weight gain or reproductive losses. Disease-free animals are happier and significantly more productive.
Quarantine infected animals to prevent disease spread
Faster disease diagnosis allows animals to be quarantined effectively until their disease status has been established.
Quickly remove non-viable animals from production
Once the diagnosis is complete, infected animals can either receive effective treatment or quickly be removed from the herd, preventing further infections.
