The knowledge and experience of our vets will also be able to assist you in every aspect of the game industry, providing veterinary advice starting with laying bird management and egg production throughout rear and onto release. We focus on offering a ‘hands-on,’ approach, providing clients with health care programmes, tailored to their individual needs and requirements. In doing so, we aim to be proactive rather than reactive, providing preventative measures and strategic health planning with regular site visits and routine monitoring where required. We strive to use evidence-based medicine along with the promotion of best management practices. The team are widely experiences in all aspects of the poultry industry, but it is the personal, on-farm service provided to all farms that defines the high standards of St David's Poultry Team.
