As teatseal becomes more common for preventing infection this service has grown. SWVS FarmPlus team have a heifer teatseal trailer which allows for safe application of teatseal in heifers at most locations (a suitable yard and race is still required). Hygiene is paramount when using teatseal and our team ensure this.
Teatseal in heifers is normally done approximately 4 weeks prior to calving but can be done earlier. A fine day is required to reduce contamination.
Our team is also available at herd dry off time if an extra pair of hands is needed or for staff training.
