St David’s Poultry Team provide veterinary care and flock health planning for turkey farms of all sizes from year round production through to the specialist Christmas market.
We offer a range of health solutions bespoke to each farm depending on the challenges and expectations of the market. We offer in-house bacteriology, serology and PCR testing for turkey pathogens. Our veterinary team are committed to promoting good bird health through the use of vaccination and antimicrobial alternatives. Our Seed, Feed,Weed concept is particularly useful in helping to maintain good intestinal health in turkeys without the need for antimicrobial treatment. This forms the basis of our ABC (Applied Bacterial Control) approach.
We give guidance on legislation surrounding turkey production and processing to ensure our producers are kept up to date.
Training programmes are also run in relation to maintain turkey health and welfare so that we can share new developments with our farmers. This is especially important in season turkey production. These events provide a useful opportunity for farmers to network and discuss new ideas.
