WITH the welcome arrival of February, local farmers are now gearing up for the busy Spring period and all the activities that accompany it, including calving. Fane Valley Stores located throughout Northern Ireland offer a wide range of animal health and identification products to help farmers through this busy period in the farming calendar.
Throughout the month of February, Fane Valley Stores are offering all herd keepers who order a minimum of 30 Allflex BVD cattle tag sets, a free calving essentials kit. Three different kits are available with the contents differing depending on the number of tags ordered.
All kits contain arm length examination gloves, superlube and iodine. Orders for 50 or more tags also include calving ropes and a digital thermometer and orders for 100 or more tags have the addition of three tubes of ‘Country Newborn 5 in 1 paste’ and a 12 sachet pack of ‘Country Scour Formula’.
Pat Donnelly, Fane Valley Stores’ Livestock Identification Manager, remarked, “With Spring calving just around the corner this offer of a calving essentials kit is available to all customers purchasing their new Allflex BVD cattle tag sets in February, allowing them to be well prepared for any early arrivals.
“We know that farmers are busy at this time of year with slurry tanks to be emptied and calving about to start, so we thought that this offer would allow them to order their tags and stock up on calving essentials at the same time. We have three kits available depending on the number of tags ordered, so everyone is a winner.”
Pat continued, “To avail of this great offer just order your Allflex BVD tags in any Fane Valley Store or order direct from our tag department and have your tags and calving kit delivered direct to your door.”
