The colostrum pasteuriser worked well, we had very few problems with the calves this year.

Your Fresh Cow Drink is very good. I have not had any displacements since starting on it. The cows drink it well if they have just calved.
Jon Cook on 22/06/2016
Received the mobile milker today. It is very sturdy and well built. The motor and pulsator are very quiet. Looking forward to the next calving to try it out.

Ovi-Power drench has worked well in our Texel cross ewes. litter size is very good. If you don't have lambs at the start, you can't have them at the end!

We've used N-Fix Slurry Booster in our slurry system including some slatted pits.We've not experienced any problems below the slats and grass has grown really well after being spread with the slurry. Continuing to use this product.

We've used Combisile for 2 years now and it does exactly what they say. The feed value of our grass is well preserved and we don't get any heating. We have also used it on wholecrop with good results. The cows like the silage we have made with Combisile additive.
Graham Robson, Lancashire on 17/02/2016
Graham describes GSAH Feed Passage Coating as “as hard as nails.” He says the surface has remained undamaged, despite driving over it daily with a feeder wagon. “I like to provide my cows with the best possible environment, in order to maximise yields. Making the surface more comfortable and cleaner for them to eat from was part of that process. “There is no real need to power wash it, as the cows lick it clean themselves. I like GSAH Feed Passage Coating and it will definitely be part of any new building that is put up on the farm; it has done a good job.”

Great product, I rear B&W bull calves, no scours after the change over from milk. Which makes it a really easy transition from raw milk to replace. Would highly recommend this product.

"We calve a lot of heifers and have had a fair bit of scours. It's good stuff as a supplement and cut our scours by 80%"
Tracey Ardern, Derbyshire on 04/09/2015
Hi, just to let you know I'm getting on great with the pasteuriser. I don't know how I managed without it.

We use TK Sheep footbath. The sheep had scald, some with maggots. We couldn't stand them afterwards as advised. They just ran through the bath and back onto grass. We repeated it after a couple of days. We were impressed with the results. The maggots were killed.
J Quine, Isle of Man on 05/05/2015
"I thought that our scanning percentage could be improved, so I tried Ovi-Power mineral 7 vitamin drench from G Shepherd Animal Health. I am very happy with the results as our Suffolks & Leicesters now scan at over 200%
D Smith, Cumbria on 09/04/2015
Ive been using it for a few months now and find it does the same job as formalin without the health problems. We use it daily and find we dont get over hard , cracked hooves anymore.
D Swale, Lancashire on 26/03/2015
We have been looking for a product to use in our daily foot bath routine that works equally well for both the staff who have to administer it and the cows it has to treat, "TK Everyday" works well as part of our routine.
Mr Foot on 19/03/2015
Since using the Perfect Udder bags this calving system we have seen improved calf health. This is backed-up my our weekly blood sample results. Calf immunoglobulin levels are much improved since we adopted the Perfect Udder System. As we are very busy, we just grab a bag, warm it and feed it through the attached tube.
M Thomas, Yorkshire on 24/02/2015
Great product been using it for a few years now on my calves. I've not had to use any other products after first treatment. 9/10 cases of scours were not repeated after first treatment. Its easy to feed 20ml per 1 litre of milk ideally over water, for 4 feeds. fast acting rehydration for calves. I would highly recommend this product to all calf rearers as a first choice product for the treatment of calf scour!

Lesley says: ‘Since adding Biocell to the finishing barley ration, our cattle have broken all records. The DLWG has increased on average by 0.2kgs from 1.3kgs to 1.5kgs per head per day. That’s over 100 days, and the best cattle are gaining 1.8kgs per day. The feed consumption is the same as before, so BIOCELL is improving feed conversion’.

The Colostrometer is working well, We are getting on very well with it combined with the First Thirst Colostrum Powder Supplement. We have found that about 50% of cows produce weak colostrum. We fortify this with your powder. The calves have benefited and are doing well.

NJ and KM Summerfield on 28/09/2013
We have been using various makes of dried lamb colostrum over the years and found a surprising inconsistency with the results, some with dire outcomes. This is the first year we have tried ‘First Thirst Super Lamb Colostrum’ and we have been thrilled with the results. We have had a couple of occasions of where ewes have lambed with no milk on them for a couple of hours, or when the lambs were a little weak. When you know you only have a few hours to get things right it’s imperative to get a quality feed into them as soon as possible. You only get one chance to get it right. The lambs that we have fed with the new colostrum have done fantastically well. We whole heartedly recommend this product as a success and we will definitely buy more for the next lambing season.

"The Colostrum Thawer has greatly improved my colostrum management. I used to get very frustrated spending hours defrosting plastic bottles in the kitchen sink. The boiling water was doing the antibody quality no good and I was wasting precious time. We now get the Perfect Udder from the freezer, place it in a bucket of warm water, switch on the thermostat on the thawer and in around 25 minutes the colostrum is thawed thoroughly. This tool has allowed me to give my calves the best start in life and yet save time."
Graham Shepherd, Lancs on 09/02/2013
It mixes well, considering it is pure dried colostrum with all the fat. It is high antibody and energy.
Michael Parker on 09/02/2013
A good mixing colostrum, easy to tube feed. All lambs did well. Used for topping up triplets mainly.
Tracey Martin on 28/01/2013
Bought for calves in hutches in multiples, not singles both breeds Ayrshire's and Holstein. Graham was very helpful. Nice warm calves.
Mrs J Jones, Shropshire on 28/01/2013
Many thanks for dispatching my order so quickly. The jackets arrived next day and were needed straight away due to the weather. I now have 12 calves with your jackets on, and they all look nice and warm in them. Many Thanks
S Malpass, Staffordshire on 28/01/2013
Thanks for the great service Graham – the colostrum bags arrived the next day as you said they would! Sarah
A Robson - Mini pedigree Miniature Herefords on 04/01/2013
Just used First Thirst IBR elite in Perfect Udder on a newborn miniature Hereford heifer calf. The calves dam was a 1st calf heifer, she calved in the night and we wanted to feed the calf to give us the peace of mind that she'd drunk ample colostrum within the recommended first six hours of life. We fed the calf using the teat provided, the pure colostrum powder mixed thoroughly within the warm water and was very easy to feed within the perfect udder bag. An excellent quality product, very easy to use with the comfort of knowing we'd done everything possible for our valuable miniature Hereford heifer calf.

David & Austin Perry, Killane Pedigree Holsteins on 04/01/2013
We're a pedigree herd now using genomics and selling heifers and young bulls. We started vaccinating for IBR last year so using First Thirst IBR elite gives us the added protection we need. The calves have done really well on it but it also means that any bulls that we may sell to go into AI or any stock for export will not have their high health status jeopardised. First Thirst IBR elite is giving us a very high quality colostrum but also the guarantee that the health status of calves isn't undermined and any potential sale value lost, especially at a time when we're embracing genomics to widen our market opportunities.

John Cook, Wiltshire on 26/11/2012
Dear Graham, I'm a great believer in prevention rather than cure. Historically we have a high instance of milk fever (and all the annoying knock on effects - mainly short term down cows and RFM) but since using the Fresh Cow Drink immediately after calving it has all but disappeared. It's a great relief to know that the cow has had a good quantity of calcium (together with all the other bits) at this time of great stress - especially late in the evening when it might be a few hours before she will be looked at again. I have not had any down cows, retained cleansings or LDAs since I started using the product. I've only had one cow refuse to voluntarily drink and I think that was my fault for NOT offering it immediately after calving, the rest seem to relish every drop. Some of the larger cows have two sachets and I'm happy to give it to them. I've even had to fight some of the other dry cows off...they can smell it from a distance and all want some.
Mr. Roston, Cheshire on 10/05/2012
We've used a fair bit of Sanofoam and found it outperforms our previous product
MA Shallcross, Salisbury on 09/05/2012
We routinely give forth calvers and above 2 x Calcium Bolus Extra and 1 x Fosfor bolus at calving. It does the trick as we rarely see milk fever in these cows now. We have put a self locking yolk in the calving pen to simplify the process.

GOOD FOR DRENCHING COWS WITH PROPYLENE GLYCOL. EASY TO CLEAN AND USE, BETTER THAN A DRENCHING BOTTLE.

Our calves have never done so well. We wish he had bought a pasteuriser years ago!

this Colostrum powder has revolutionised my calf management. I also use the Colostrometer, and use the powder to strengthen weak colostrum.
D McVicker on 27/02/2012
I'm now onto my third bucket, it reduces coughing and reduces Vet costs. It certainly helps my calves

"I really like the Calcium Bolus Extra. Since we started using them,as part of our dry cow management, milk fevers and associated problems are very low and they save time, being faster than giving a bottle of calcium" Mr R.Park, Kendal, Cumbria, UK. 180 cows.

A supper coat. Currently using them for ram lambs. Great success
Bridget Whell on 08/08/2011
Fabulous product! Probably no better at rehydration than any other but with the big advantage that you can feed in milk (or water) or drench separately if one calf in a big group. It has been exellent at getting us through cases of Crypto that require rehydration over long periods and allows decisions to be made on feeding to be made then and there. We have found that rather than drench neat (some calves then stop drinking, which can be a probelm with batch feeding, or find it uncomfortable after feeding - sticky around the mouth) it is better to mix in small amounts of milk that will not cause over feeding or look for a way to drench direct into the back of the mouth.
