We offer a number of services to support time consuming health management for farmers:

  • Blood Sample collection for sending to a laboratory for Serology testing – (see below)
  • DNA sampling
  • Weighing & Body Condition Scoring by Certified Body Condition Score Assessors
  • Serology testing for animal diseases: 

Serology testing 

  • IBR (Infectious Bovine Rhinotracheitis)
  • BVD & EBL (Bovine Viral Diarrhoea and Enzootic Bovine Leukosis)
  • Johnes Disease (deer and cattle)
  • CAE testing for goat herds (Caprine Encephalitis and Arthritis)
  • Trace Element deficiencies.

A number of these services we also deliver in support of companies and their nationwide programmes.

TBfree Programme

AsureQuality is contracted to OSPRI (Operational Solutions for the Primary Industry) under TBfree New Zealand(external link) to deliver TB testing services for both cattle and deer against the National Pest Management Strategy.

We also support vector control and surveillance activities under this programme by performing post-mortems of possums, ferrets, feral pigs and deer. This involves examining and in some cases extracting all lymph nodes, lymphocentres or tissues from the carcass.

TB Testing

While most of our TB testing is completed under the contract with TB free we do offer a "peace of mind" test if you want assurance your cattle or deer are TB free.
