Disbudding of calves is recommended when they are between 2 and 6 weeks of age. To ensure high standards of animal welfare are maintained, we always use local anaesthetic, which our field technicians are fully trained and approved to administer.
AsureQuality provides experienced stock handlers and electronic scales for cattle weighing. The results can be received as a printout or by email.
Body Condition Scoring
Condition scoring can be done at the same time as weighing or separately if required by trained staff who provide a sound, objective and impartial assessment of the condition of the herd. Our staff are Certified Body Condition Score Assessors to the DairyNZ BCS Standard.
EID Scanning and File Creation
We have scanning equipment and trained staff to scan your herd’s EIDs. As a result we can accurately verify animal identification, matching lifetime ID with NAIT tags, to provide farmers with electronic records for animal databases.
