BCVA Webinar - Health Planning and KPIs in Suckler Herds

Health Planning and KPIs in Suckler Herds

Tuesday 14th April, 8-9pm

Being presented by Joseph Henry


UK production from suckler herds is moderate demonstrating there is a lot of work out there currently not being done by farm vets. Suckler work is seasonal with different jobs at key points of influence throughout the year. Understanding suckler key performance indicators and using them to guide the health plans are very important for beef vets. Working with farmers and helping improve their business by getting involved in management decisions such as bull choice, breeding period, heifer selection, weaning strategies, nutrition as well as disease prevention is rewarding.

This is a FREE webinar for BCVA members and will be broadcast on TUESDAY 14th April from 8-9pm and will be presented by Joseph Henry.

Since graduating from Glasgow in 1998, Joe has worked in Northumberland and in New Zealand, primarily with suckler and sheep clients focusing on preventative medicine, production KPIs and grazing management. In 2018 he undertook a study tour to large cow-calf operations in the western USA. Joe also runs a farm with his wife Rachel, including a Luing-based herd of about 100 head. He also provides the veterinary input to the East Northumberland Farmer’s Club benchmarking group which started 2003
