Are you inducing this year?

June 15, 2012

This year the threshold for inducing is 4% of the herd.

1. If we do not hear from you, we are assuming that you do not wish to induce cattle this season.

2. If you do want to induce a proportion of the herd and it is less than 4.00% it is OK, but we need a list of these cows for our records ASAP. The record needs to show tag numbers, cow age and expected due to calve date.

3. If you want to induce over 4.00% of the herd we (MVS veterinarians) need to apply to Tatua/OCC/Fonterra for special dispensation on your behalf ASAP. This special dispensation needs to be approved by the dairy company before we can induce your herd.
