HERD HEALTH All the sale bulls have been ear notched and screened for BVDV (also known as Pestivirus) and have been found to have a high immunity to BVDV and it is therefore not necessary to vaccinate. We recommend that you consult your vet regarding an ongoing BVDdV programme for your herd.
All the sale bulls are vaccinated for Vibriosis and given a booster. We recommend annual boosters are given to all bulls.
All of our bulls receive 7 in 1 vaccinations at three months of age, six weeks later and a booster as a yearling. They are drenched at weaning and periodically according to worm counts.
All Te Mania Angus bulls are examined by a veterinarian prior to sale day which includes palpation of the sexual anatomy and the circumference of the testicles. The jaw is checked for correct bite.
Te Mania Angus is J-BAS 8 accredited, the highest level of bio-security accreditation in the new, national approach to the prevention of Johne’s disease (JD) in cattle. J-BAS focuses on managing on-farm biosecurity risk rather than controlling disease through regulation, and treats JD as just one of many diseases that producers must manage within their business.
