We look after our animals well. Each day we routinely check the health of each of our cattle. If they are sick or injured, we monitor them in sick bay; a smaller, warmer, straw bedded shed where they get lots of TLC and when necessary, we give them the appropriate medication and record it correctly; no trace of the medication enters the food chain.
Having introduced multi-species swarths containing plantain, we are able to reduce the worm-burden in our cattle, as this acts as a natural wormer. We also use plant extract in the cattle’s feed, to avoid parasites. It smells a bit like Vicks Vapour Rub!
