Herd Consultation Services

What is Herd Consultation?
Contrary to popular belief, veterinarians are not only here to cost you money! The knowledgeable and experienced doctors with Tri-State Veterinary Services, LLC would much rather help you save your money than spend it. 

One way we can help do this is by offering herd (or flock) consultation services where we tour the entirety of your operation and ask several questions specific to your business to understand your successes and areas of improvement. We will then provide you and your team with a detailed report and recommendations to promote your strengths and fine-tune your weaknesses.
Every farm is different, so it is important for us to tailor our plan to best reflect your production goals and address all your concerns.
Areas that can benefit from consultation include, but are not limited to:

  • Nutrition
  • Vaccination Protocols
  • Treatment Protocols
  • Soil and Forage Analysis and Management
  • Biosecurity
  • Breeding Soundness and Success
  • Neonatal Care
  • Parasite Control
  • Hoof Care and Management


What Does it Cost?
We will charge a farm visit based on the location of the premises followed by veterinary service time of $280/hour while on the premises.

How Can Spending Money Save Money?
Utilizing thorough and informative investigative consultation services can be the best investment you make for your farm. A lot of time the doctors at Tri-State Vet can find areas to save money by removing unnecessary vaccinations or treatments from your protocols, revamping your nutritional program, or finding ways to improve breeding success. Sometimes we can cut costs, and sometimes we can increase production. Either way, it is more profit in your pocket!


Monthly Herd Health Examinations
For larger operations and dairy clients, we offer monthly herd health examinations to aid in pregnancy diagnosis, vaccination administration, dehorning, castration, blood testing, milk cultures, and more. Producers who sign up for the monthly herd exams are given a monthly cost budget for services that are tailored to the needs and goals of the farm. These monthly charges will include discounted services to aid in a more affordable and comprehensive plan.
