At Westpoint we believe that prevention is better than cure. That’s better for the animals, and more time and cost-effective for the farmer too.
With this in mind we have a dedicated mobile team of experts who vets and farmers call on to carry out a wide range of technical tasks proven to help keep animals as healthy, mobile and productive as possible. The work can be carried out on an ad hoc basis, or as part of an ongoing animal health maintenance plan tailor-made to individual farms and producers.
Our experts are fully trained to recognised national standards, and regularly assessed to ensure their work is of a consistently high quality. They are also highly experienced, and kitted out with the latest equipment and products for the jobs in hand.
