Scanner

There was a bit of a chat about this back in the day, I will see if I can find the thread in a minute.

Ultimately I decided it was too dear for me.
It's not the cows that go PNC to pd+ that take the time, so the saving is even less than you think.

Two years on from when this thread started, has anyone actually bought a scanner? I am looking to buy one. Costing a fortune getting someone to do it.

I want to be able to go out to the sheds and check an animal whenever I feel like it. We AI all the cattle.

What do you recommend and where can one purchase.

Thanks

we are doing all our own sync work now and using less anti biotics but if we don’t give the vets some work then we will struggle to get a good one when we need one

Five nature-recovery projects spanning nearly 100,000ha across the West Midlands, Cambridgeshire, the Peak District, Norfolk and Somerset have been announced by the government and Natural England today (Thursday, May 26).

The aim of the projects is to deliver nature recovery at a landscape scale, helping to tackle biodiversity loss, climate change and improve public health and well-being.

All five projects will make a significant contribution towards the national delivery of the international commitment to protect at least 30% of land and...
