Bohanan Farm works with Dr. Jadene Patch from Plainfield to keep our animals healthy. Dr. Patch comes once a month to evaluate the cattle.
Most of what she does is reproductive work. She checks the cows to see if they are pregnant and if the cow is carrying a healthy calf. This is done with ultrasound equipment.
Dr. Patch also works with us designing vaccination programs and cow treatment protocols. She is also available for emergency help and advice.
The most important part of herd health is preventive maintenance. Dr. Patch plays an important role in this along with our nutritionist, and employees. A good preventive care program keeps health problems to a minimum.
