Together with Hi Health, we have started to change from our fairly static, written and printed herd health plans, to interactive, web-based, herd health plans.
This system is developed by the farm vets and programmers of ‘My Healthy Herd’ and will allow farmers to do a lot more than ‘just read’ the herd health plan, usually only once a year…
The program and website are the result of 10+ years struggle and experience of cattle vets and farmers designing and working with herd health plans. The current program is not for computer geeks but for time-poor farmers and vets. It allows no-nonsense access and input by both farmers and their vets. The reports are in an easy to understand ‘traffic light style’ giving answers at a glance. Both parties are then able to read and digest the outcomes online before meeting to discuss the results.
The Bio-Security and Disease Risk Assessments and the resulting Herd Health Plans can then be printed off and discussed.
