DEPARTMENT: The Shed | Vet Platform
Every dairy shed needs a solid vet platform for performing artificial insemination (AI) and other animal health work. To provide safe and efficient working environment for your vet, you need to provide a platform that is robust and fit for purpose. The platform must be easy for a vet to pull into position, it must not move during use, it must provide ample room for two vets to be performing AI while the farmer tail paints, and it should be positioned close to the secure room where your animal drugs are stored.</p><p>In this video builder Nigel Hodges shows a design of vet platform that he favours, which folds down from the side wall of the shed. He explains that this is easy for vets to deploy and won’t move during AI.
