A note from our Director

February has been another wet month; a recent tv news weather bulletin recorded that Priddy has had 194mm of rain by the 21st of Feb compared to a typical average of 58mm for the whole month. 

Farmers are reporting a reasonable amount of spring grass around but getting stock or machines onto it may well be a challenge. In the practice fertility work is easing back slightly, most of the autumn calving herds have finished or are finishing their PDs with positive results. 

We were all sad for Emilys last day on the 23rd of Feb, she has been with us for three years and is returning to Canada with her fiancé. Emily was popular with farmers and we would like to wish them both the best of luck for the move. Emily has very much enjoyed her time working with the Shepton team and clients and promised to visit us in the future. 

Some of the vet team went to support the Wells and Glastonbury young farmers charity tractor run on the 25th of Feb with 88 tractors in total. Shepton vets are proud to support the Somerset young farmers rally with sponsorship and vet services. 

Congratulations to Charlie and Becky who are now milking through their new robots. We have had several clients invest in farm infrastructure in the last 12 months and it is always great to see confidence in the industry.
