Latest News

We are still here, but our hours are changing….

We are continuing to streamline and refine our processes while keeping everybody safe.

With this in mind, our Tainui Street Clinic will be available to be contacted for orders and booking in of routine farm calls between the hours of 8am – 3pm during the week.

Routine orders should be placed whenever possible by 1pm, so that our team can get them ready in time for you to collect them before  2.30pm.

Please be assured that any emergency supplies will still be available as our Vets will be able to organise those for you.

A duty veterinarian will always be available on 07 888 8197 and our staff are still working normal hours, however they will not be based at the clinic.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to give us a call on 07 888 8197.

We thank you for your understanding and consideration during these times.


Vets are essential services so this is what it will look like at MVS under Level 4 of COVID-19

VETS are an essential service and we have been told to continue business as usual but with some obvious changes to facilitate social distancing….

Following on from our last communication confirming that we are an essential service, we wish to provide further information to Dairy and Livestock farmers on our operations going forward.

  1. On farm visits are to continue largely as normal but without person to person contact. Please ensure a 2m distance is maintained at all times and that we have easy access to clean water allowing us to be able to wash hands as required.
  2. Milk Quality Consultations and RVM Authorisations are now to be conducted either over the phone or via video conferencing if both parties are set to do this.  These are considered as crucial to ensuring our continued ability to supply milk and animal products of the highest standard to local and international markets, with emphasis in particular on sustainable use of Antimicrobials and Animal Welfare.
  3. We are still supplying a full range of Animal Health Products and essential Small Animal Services again with obvious changes aimed at eliminating person to person contact so clinic/shop doors are closed from 5.00pm today. We ask you to phone the clinic prior to arriving, which will enable us to get you the correct advice and assistance you require. We have been using our ‘drive through’ system mentioned in our previous bulletin and it has has been functioning well since Monday. The following are the steps you need to take to use this system with minimal disruption to you:

MVS drive through collection area protocol:
1. Call the clinic and place your order of required supplies.
2. We will provide you with a bin number.
3. Enter the clinic area between Ag-Worx and MVS and drive past the two roller doors on the right.
4. At the back of the clinic just as you turn right through the carpark, behind the clinic there is a collection area with numbered green bins in which you will find your order.

When collecting larger orders such as Mineral blends, Dry Cow and Teatseal, we will ask you to pull up near the collection area and call the clinic to say you have arrived. Our staff will then bring your order out to your car.

Thank you for your understanding in these extraordinary times.


Latest Spore Count Results

Grass samples tested this week from the MVS Monitor Farms have shown the following:
  • Hinuera Monitor Paddocks – 15,000 spores/gram
  • Matamata Monitor Paddocks  15,000 spores/gram
  • Te Poi Monitor Paddocks –  13,300 spores/gram
  • Tirau Monitor Paddocks –   72,200 spores/gram
  • Walton Monitor Paddocks –   5,000 spores/grams

As expected we continue to see variation in spore counts across monitor farms. Walton continues to stay low, slight increases seen in Te Poi, Matamata, Hinuera, with the most drastic change seen on Tirau with our highest count so far this year.

If MetService is correct we are in for some rain this weekend, which may increase spore multiplication. Even though the ground is starting to cool down we may still be on for a late spike in spores in the next coming weeks.


Teatseal Training Day cancelled due to M.O.H recommendations…

Due to Ministry of Health recommendations around COVID-19, we are changing the way we conduct our training this year.

Although we are no longer able to offer the Teatseal & Dry Cow Training seminar here at the clinic we still feel it is important to receive training on correct teatsealant and dry cow therapy administration techniques:
Option 1: Online training video
Zoetis has a great training video available on their website. Visit https://www.zoetis.co.nz/dairywellness/preventing-mastitis/best-practice-administration.aspx

Option 2: On-farm staff training 
We have experienced staff that have had extensive training in Teatseal application who are available to provide training on your farm. Please contact the clinic if you are interested.


We are still committed to providing Best Practice Veterinary care…

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to spread globally, our thoughts and deepest sympathies are extended to all who have been affected by the disease. We are monitoring this situation closely and are committed to helping our staff and clients stay healthy.

In order to mitigate the risk of exposure of staff and clients to COVID-19 we recommend the following measures:

  • All staff and clients entering and leaving the clinics must use hand sanitizer located on the counters.
  • There is a no-hand-shake policy in force between staff, clients and visitors to the premises as well as with each other. Hands must be sanitized between all interactions.
  • If you are not feeling well or are exhibiting symptoms of illness that include cough, fever and/or shortness of breath, or have traveled to an area of active COVID-19 transmission within the previous two weeks, please refrain from any contact with our staff. In cases where you have stock that need to be seen by one of our Veterinarians and you are ill, please arrange for another individual to be present on farm to assist.

We appreciate your co-operation and apologise for any inconvenience.


Latest Spore Count Results

 

Grass samples tested this week from the MVS Monitor Farms have shown the following:

  • Hinuera Monitor Paddocks – 30,000 spores/gram
  • Matamata Monitor Paddocks –  20,000 spores/gram
  • Te Poi Monitor Paddocks –  12,000 spores/gram
  • Tirau Monitor Paddocks –   23,000 spores/gram
  • Walton Monitor Paddocks –   9,000 spores/grams

As expected counts on our monitor farms have started trending up in the last week, with counts across three monitor areas reaching up to and over 20,000 spores/gram.

This week grass samples have only been submitted from our monitor farms, and with the recent rain we expect that individual farms are likely to have counts higher than what we are seeing on monitor farms. Whilst monitor farms provide trend data and indicate that counts are increasing, actual on farm risk is unknown until you submit grass samples.

We will also cover correct teatsealant and dry cow therapy administration techniques.


What are Spore counts doing on your farm?

Grass samples tested this week from the MVS Monitor Farms have shown the following:

  • Hinuera Monitor Paddocks –  0 spores/gram
  • Matamata Monitor Paddocks   5,000 spores/gram
  • Te Poi Monitor Paddocks –  1,600 spores/gram
  • Tirau Monitor Paddocks –   16,000 spores/gram
  • Walton Monitor Paddocks –   5,000 spores/grams
With the big dry continuing we have only seen samples coming from our monitor farms this week. Trends from monitor farms continue to stay low but we are still recommending that farmers submit their own samples to assess risk levels before making changes to zinc supplementation.


What are spore counts doing on your farm?

Grass samples tested this week from the MVS Monitor Farms have shown the following:

  • Hinuera Monitor Paddocks  5,000 spores/gram
  • Matamata Monitor Paddocks –  1,600 spores/gram
  • Te Poi Monitor Paddocks –  26,600 spores/gram
  • Tirau Monitor Paddocks –   No spores seen
  • Walton Monitor Paddocks –   23,000 spores/grams

This week we have only received pasture samples from monitor farms.

With a reduced number of samples it is difficult to comment on specific risk for individual farms. Again, we encourage farmers to submit grass samples to determine spore counts on their farm, before making major changes to zinc treatments.


Get ahead for Autumn Calving


Spore count bulletin – Low pasture covers still have spore counts present

Grass samples tested this week from the MVS Monitor Farms have shown the following:

  • Hinuera Monitor Paddocks – 3,000 spores/gram
  • Matamata Monitor Paddocks – 3,000 spores/gram
  • Te Poi Monitor Paddocks – 10,000 spores/gram
  • Tirau Monitor Paddocks –  13,300 spores/gram
  • Walton Monitor Paddocks –  1,600 spores/grams

Spore counts appear to have lowered slightly based on the results of monitor paddocks this week.

As the dry weather continues, we expect trends to show this more “stable” pattern. The most important thing to realise is that all farms are different with 22 samples tested this week ranging from Zero to 65,000 spores per gram.

Based on this, we recommend checking spore counts on your farm to ensure you know your level of risk.

Latest Spore Count results

Grass samples tested this week from the MVS Monitor Farms have shown the following:

  • Hinuera Monitor Paddocks – 43,333 spores/gram
  • Matamata Monitor Paddocks – 23,333 spores/gram
  • Te Poi Monitor Paddocks – 23,333 spores/gram
  • Tirau Monitor Paddocks –  53,333 spores/gram
  • Walton Monitor Paddocks –  26,600 spores/grams

Spore counts in our monitor areas continue to rise with some paddocks increasing by as much as 30,000. We are all patiently waiting for the rain and if the forecast is correct, we may be in for a shower or two. If so we expect spore counts to shoot up.

If you want to know more about the various ways in which you can supplement your stock with zinc feel free to pop into the clinic and chat to the team.


Latest Spore count results

Grass samples tested this week from the MVS Monitor Farms have shown the following:

  • Hinuera Monitor Paddocks – 25,000 spores/gram
  • Matamata Monitor Paddocks – 33,000 spores/gram
  • Te Poi Monitor Paddocks – 3000 spores/gram
  • Tirau Monitor Paddocks – 46,600 spores/gram
  • Walton Monitor Paddocks – 21,600 spores/gram

Counts for this week have come up slightly for some of our monitor farms.  It would be a good idea to start checking your own paddocks and possibly considering full rates of zinc.


Weekly Spore Counts

Spore count testing has started

Grass samples tested this week from the MVS Monitor Farms have shown the following:

  • Hinuera Monitor Paddocks – 5000 spores/gram
  • Matamata Monitor Paddocks – 46,000 spores/gram
  • Te Poi Monitor Paddocks – no samples available
  • Tirau Monitor Paddocks – 30,000 spores/gram
  • Walton Monitor Paddocks – 25,000 spores/grams

If you haven’t already done so, we recommend starting to add zinc to your system and consider testing your own paddocks before  increasing zinc to full rates as we have had some moderate counts.

Our highest counts for the week were seen in paddocks that had recently been topped, or were silage paddocks, which highlights an important reminder that with increasing dead matter there is an increase in the number of spores.


Red teats are starting to appear and spore counting is underway

We have had reports of a few cows starting to show mild signs of photosensitivity.

While the Facial Eczema season is just around the corner, we believe the cases we are seeing now are associated with feeding turnips.

Turnips are a Brassica forage crop and provide an excellent source of nutrients to support lactation through summer however turnips have been associated with several animal health issues such as

  • Photosensitivity – Similar to Facial Eczema clinical signs
  • Choke – Where turnips are not properly chewed by the cow and lodge in the cows oesophagus (muscular tube between the mouth and rumen)
  • Acidosis – Rapidly fermented turnips can reduce the rumen pH

 

Generally issues can arise if turnips are introduced too quickly, or fed in excess of 30% of total diet.

If you are concerned or think you may have cows suffering from any of the above symptoms, call us for advice on 07 888 8197.

 

Spore counting is underway for 2020

Monitor farms have started bringing in samples and our first set of results will be sent out tomorrow. When counts on monitor farms hit 20,000 spores/gram, it’s time to check your own farm. Once counts on your farm approach 30,000 spores/gram, cows should be on full rates of zinc.

By checking counts on your farm, you can tailor zinc dosing according to your level of risk, potentially saving you money. To promote and encourage farmers to monitor their farmers we are offering spore counting for $65 per four paddock samples submitted on one day saving $21.
There are many options for dosing stock with zinc. We have a variety of products in stock. If you want to know what will work best for your farm feel free to come into the clinic and discuss this with our team.


Things are warming up. Are your stock ready for the heat?

December can bring heat stress….

Cows suffering heat stress eat less, produce less, struggle to conceive and are at greater risk of succumbing to infectious diseases such as Mastitis.
This is one of the reasons why farmers notice a ‘spike’ in Mastitis cases in hotter months.

There is growing scientific evidence that supports the protective role of organic Zinc supplements* in susceptible cows.
(*Note: not the same product as Zinc Sulphate or Zinc Oxide used to protect cows for Facial Eczema).

While the exact details of this protective role and the mechanisms behind it are complex, there appears to be two key areas where organic zinc has beneficial effects:

1. Physical protection – Zinc is a key component of epithelial cells, the cells making up the internal lining of the intestines, lungs, reproductive tract and udder

2. Immune function – Zinc is utilised by the immune system at the cellular level, important once bacteria ‘breach’ the epithelial lining

ProPath LQ Zn180 is a convenient, cost effective product containing high levels of organic zinc and is in-store now.

We recommend supplementing cows with additional organic zinc over and above your daily minerals during the heat stress period. If you would like advice on your individual farm system please phone the clinic and speak with one of our veterinarians on 07 888 8197.


Do you have cows tipping over? Metabolic disease this year seems worse than previous seasons…

While there are many contributing factors that result in Metabolic Disease, we are seeing issues in herds where the dietary analysis looks ‘spot on’. 

In these herds it appears the composition of pasture is having a major effect. Crude protein levels in the grass are unseasonably high.

High Crude Protein levels tend to drive udder swelling and excessive production in very early lactation prior to the cows adapting to milk production.

It is suggested that any cow that produces more than 10 litres of colostrum in her first milking is a ‘problem cow’ from the perspective that they are at much greater risk of developing Metabolic Disease.

If you are one of the farmers noticing more wobbly cows, there is some good news as improvements can be made in most cases by changing a few management strategies around:

  • Pasture allowance to the springers
  • Area allowance for the springers
  • Calcium treatments of fresh calved cows and springers
  • Collection of newborn calves
  • Milking frequency of colostrum cows

Call us here at MVS on 07 888 8197 if you would like to discuss this further.


Want to get your calves off to the best start? One product can make a big difference

When it comes to rearing beautiful thriving calves, Raewyn Weenink certainly knows what she is doing! Recently Abby Payze – MVS Retail Manager caught up with Raewyn to discuss her recent experience of a product that is gaining attention in the market – MULTIMIN® Injection.

“I had four Autumn calves diagnosed with viral pneumonia. After a course of antibiotics, they had recovered but it had shaken them up and they were looking very poorly. After contacting MVS it was suggested to me to try Multimin Injection®.

Within a week of giving them a shot they were looking like nothing had ever been the matter with them. They were shiny in the coat and looking great. After seeing this response, I then treated my Spring-born calves and noticed the same thing within a week. Their coats were glossy and black, and they were thriving. I’m really happy with the results in both groups treated.

I would definitely use this again. It’s just like having another tool in your toolbox”.
Raewyn Weenink

 

Rearing great calves is no easy job and even the best farmers can be frustrated with animal health ‘niggles’ in their young ones.

Our Veterinarians have also reviewed the research specific to the NZ dairy industry and are very happy with the data presented that demonstrates MULTIMIN® injection halves mortality rates in calves from 3 days post treatment.


Treat dirty cows early to maximise your pregnancy rates. Metrichecking cows prior to mating is a well-established practice across the country, but in the last 3 years we have seen a change in the timing of Metrichecking and with it, a lift in its effectiveness.

By more effectively treating dirty (endometritis) cows sooner, we give those cows more time to recover prior to the start of mating and proactively reduce non-cycler numbers in the herd.

Key points are:

  • Treating a ‘dirty’ cow improves the 6-week In-Calf Rate (ICR) of the dirty cows by 10-15%
  • Only a third of dirty cows were found in ‘at-risk cows’
  • Treating cows 8 days to 4 weeks post calving ensures cows have the best possible chance of being detected if dirty. It also gives us the opportunity to get these cows cycling again as soon as possible
  • Very few dirty cows truly self cure with time. They just get harder to detect

There are 3 approaches to metrichecking that we have found to be effective:

1. Gold Standard – Fortnightly metrichecking of cows calved at least 8 days (requires regular drafting of animals to do efficiently. Great if you have a Pro-track or similar system). Ensures cows receive treatment as early as possible.

2. Silver standard – Identify the cows calving in the first 2-3 weeks of calving, then metrichecking these animals 8 to 10 days later. Typically this will mean the approximately half the herd will have been checked. A follow up metricheck of the later calvers 3 weeks prior to the start of mating should see 90% of cows checked very close to ideal timing. When combined with tail painting of the later calvers, this system can enable the two metrichecking jobs to be done with minimal drafting required.

3. Whole herd metricheck – If you can only fit in one metricheck then the traditional recommendation of approximately 3 weeks before PSM means that most of your cows will be calved and the cows treated should have had a chance to cure before you are too far into mating. This method can mean that a lot of dirty cows are not detected as the infection has been ‘walled-off’ before the metrichecking, or that the cow does not have sufficient time to recover prior to PSM.

Our experience with doing the gold and silver standards above is that we find more cases of metritis, which is great as it means we can make an effective intervention on more cows and give those cows a far better chance of cycling prior to PSM. Therefore less non-cyclers, better conception rates and ultimately less empty cows.

Call us to arrange a Free Repro Ready Consult at the clinic and we can come up with a plan that suits you and your farm.


A seminar for new farm workers, or for farmers wanting a refresher….

Run by MVS Farm Veterinarian Grant Fraser, by the end of this course it is intended that participants will be able to:

  1. Recognise and take appropriate action with common spring diseases of cows and condition, including calvings.
  2. Recognise and take appropriate action with common spring diseases of calves including scours.
  3. Understand responsibilities of animals care.
  4. Correctly administer animal remedies and follow industry and legal requirements.

Dairy Retail will be closed.

Monday 3rd June the clinic will be closed.

There will be a vet on call for Emergencies on 888 8197

Have a safe and happy long weekend!


Following another week of cold overnight temperatures…..

…we have seen the spore counts on most of our monitor farms fall below the critical thresh-hold. We will continue to monitor spores as they are brought to us but this will be our last regular spore count bulletin.  If we get any results of concern we will send out an urgent bulletin.

Grass samples tested this week from the MVS Monitor Farms have shown the following :

  • Hinuera Monitor Farm – 6,700 spores/gram
  • Matamata Monitor Farm – unable to provide 
  • Te Poi Monitor Farm – 35,000 spores/gram
  • Tirau Monitor Farm –  unable to provide
  • Walton Monitor Farm – unable to provide 
This week we only had one high spore count in Te Poi on a paddock that had previously been very high.  We will monitor these next week to ensure it continues this trend downwards.

 


Warning: Nitrate poisoning in local area

We have seen cases of nitrate poisoning this week and several grass samples are showing high levels of nitrates. Be careful about how you manage your pasture!

Risk factors to watch for:

  • Overcast days after days of rapid grass growth (warm, sunny days)
  • Hungry animals onto fresh breaks
  • Annual grass in early spring/autumn
  • Feeding immature crops
  • Applying urea in the last 7 days

Cows with nitrate toxicity may be slow and staggering, have trouble breathing, down or go down suddenly after running. Mucous membranes (vulva, mouth) may be a purple-brown colour. It is important not to put animals under any stress following nitrate poisoning. Slowly remove cattle from the offending pasture onto grass that has been safely grazed. Any down cows should be attended by a vet as soon as possible; there is a very effective antidote available.

If you are suspicious of any paddocks, bring in a sample for testing at the clinic or we sell nitrate test kits for home use.


Has your drench been PROVEN to give you the best ‘bang for your buck’?

Superior drenches aren’t always the most expensive

Eprinex has been proven to:

  • Get you an extra 7.5 Kg MS per cow the lactation following treatment
  • Reduced calving to conception interval by 12.9 days in heifers
  • Increased first service conception rates in first calvers (38% to 58%)
  • Reduced empty rate in first calvers

Eprinex offers all of these proven benefits, while being competitively priced with non-proven products on the market.


Latest Facial Eczema Spore Count results

Four out of five Monitor Farms have recorded lower spore counts this week
While based on these results it appears we are nearing the end of eczema season, our Te Poi monitor farm has recorded a significant increase in the number of toxic spores this week.

Grass samples tested this week from the MVS Monitor Farms have shown the following :

  • Hinuera Monitor Farm – 6,666 spores/gram
  • Matamata Monitor Farm – 10,000 spores/gram
  • Te Poi Monitor Farm – 105,000 spores/gram
  • Tirau Monitor Farm – 10,000 spores/gram
  • Walton Monitor Farm – 3,3333 spores/grams
While the general ‘trend’ is showing declines in spore numbers, the unseasonable warm weather is still favoring proliferation in spore numbers on some local farms.
Remain vigilant and continue with prophylactic zinc for now unless you have spore count information specific to your farm that indicates low spore numbers.


Spore counts continue to surprise!

While most farms and paddocks have decreased this week, counts at our Te Poi monitor farm have increased.

Grass samples tested this week from the MVS Monitor Farms have shown the following :

  • Hinuera Monitor Farm – 26,700 spores/gram
  • Matamata Monitor Farm – 16,700 spores/gram
  • Te Poi Monitor Farm – 45,000 spores/gram
  • Tirau Monitor Farm – 11,700 spores/gram
  • Walton Monitor Farm – 20,000 spores/gram

Spore counts are still at moderate levels this week, so don’t feel safe from FE until you know what the counts are doing on your farm.


Overall, maximum spore counts are lower this week BUT…

…many paddocks on our monitor farms have increased.  It goes to show that counts can be incredibly variable!

Grass samples tested this week from the MVS Monitor Farms have shown the following:

  • Hinuera Monitor Farm – 50,000 spores/gram
  • Matamata Monitor Farm – 38,300 spores/gram
  • Te Poi Monitor Farm – 30,000 spores/gram
  • Tirau Monitor Farm – 67,700 spores/gram
  • Walton Monitor Farm – 63,300 spores/gram

Remember, spore counts are still in the danger zone so don’t be complacent and make sure you know what’s happening on your farm before stopping zinc inputs.

Don’t forget to see us first for your competitive prices on all your zinc requirements this season.

Phone Abby and Gavin in our Retail Team on 07 888 8197 to pre-order your zinc boluses now.

 


Getting cooler but beware!

Spore counts remain high this week.  With cooler nights, counts may trend down but don’t think you are safe!

Grass samples tested this week from the MVS Monitor Farms have shown the following:

  • Hinuera Monitor Farm –   61,700 spores/grams
  • Matamata Monitor Farm – 8,333 spores/grams
  • Te Poi Monitor Farm – 48,300 spores/grams
  • Tirau Monitor Farm – 128,333 spores/grams
  • Walton Monitor Farm – 6,666 spores/grams

Before you stop using Zinc on your farm make sure you know what spore numbers are doing.  They need to be reliably below 10,000 spores/gram.

Remember to see us first for your competitive prices on all your zinc requirements this season.

Phone Abby and Gavin in our Retail Team on 07 888 8197 to pre-order your zinc boluses now.

 


Significant counts across all monitor farms still

Grass samples tested this week from the MVS Monitor Farms have shown the following:

  • Hinuera Monitor Farm – 61,600 spores/gram
  • Matamata Monitor Farm – 23,300 spores/gram
  • Te Poi Monitor Farm – 38,300 spores/gram
  • Tirau Monitor Farm – 145,000 spores/gram
  • Walton Monitor Farm – 70,000 spores/gram

Continue with your current Facial Eczema prevention plan.

Phone Abby and Gavin in our Retail Team on 07 888 8197 to pre-order your zinc boluses now.


Facial Eczema season continues with high counts on the majority of our Monitor Farms.

Grass samples tested this week from the MVS Monitor Farms have shown the following:

  • Hinuera Monitor Farm – 106,700 spores/gram
  • Matamata Monitor Farm – 56,700 spores/gram
  • Te Poi Monitor Farm – 46,700 spores/gram
  • Tirau Monitor Farm – 83,300 spores/gram
  • Walton Monitor Farm – 10,000 spores/gram
Again, as expected we are seeing big variations in spore counts. The Walton Monitor Farm remains low again this week, whilst others stay high or have increased. In addition we are now seeing clinical Facial Eczema cases out on farms which are treating with zinc. If you have any concerns about your treatment programs, blood sampling 10-15 animals to verify serum zinc levels can set your mind at rest.
We recommend you continue to implement your Facial Eczema prevention plans, unless you know your spore counts are consistently low.
