We are available for obstetrical emergencies (calvings/caesarians/prolapses/etc) 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. With 6 veterinarians across the clinics, there is typically someone available within short notice who can head straight out. All of our vehicles are fully equipped with everything we may need to perform anything from simple calvings through to lay-down caesarians.
With strong cattle prices, veterinary intervention has become much more economically viable as an option for those cows having difficulty calving. With the average calving bill ranging from $350-700, this still leaves a large margin if those cows are then able to be sold for $1000+. In cases where a live calf is delivered the economics are further improved - as such, early intervention is best!
