John feels his business has benefitted greatly from taking a more holistic view on animal health and using the animal health plan as a resource to record, rank and learn about herd health.

John is adamant that planning a herd health strategy has made his business a lot more profitable.

Alongside his vet Keith Laughlin, who has farmer clients across north Antrim, John has developed a working document that he uses to manage herd health on his dairy farm. The 'live' or 'working' document serves as a record for animal health treatments and the issues relating to animal health that happen on John's farm from day to day.
