“As a practicing veterinarian in Idaho and Utah, I recognized that dairy owners require and deserve access to better educational materials and training information than is presently available.  Our manuals and Internet site are the resources that will assist you in providing superior health care for your animals. 

Our materials combine the efforts and knowledge of veterinarians, nutritionists, extension agents, university faculty, and many other professionals, plus countless individual producers and owners.  Imagine an owner or producer who has instant access to expert information in each of the above fields.  No other set of resources provides such a diverse amount of information in such a concise and readily accessible manner.”

All the above is available in our printed book that we provide.  Now if you get our CD-Rom version we include everything listed above, but also we included how-to video clips, hyperlinks, cross referencing and many more features that you just can't get with an ordinary printed book. 

We also provide access to our manual via our website.  This means you can get a yearly subscription to an electronic version of the small ruminant manual. 

All subscribers will also be able to have access to Consult-A-Vet Consult -A-Vet is our online feature that allows you to post questions to our qualified Veterinarians.  You can also read postings that other customers have made and read the answers they have received. 

Remember that old cliché?  The more you put into life the more you get out of it.  The same is true here.  If you put as much time and resource as you can into maintaining the health and well being of an animal, the better production you will get from that animal, whether it be for meat or milk. 

Now I know what some of you are thinking,  “Hey I can do this, this is a great product.”  To you I say, DON'T WAIT GO BUY THIS NOW!  Now to you out there that are saying “I can't do this I'm not a vet,” let me tell you that I understand your concerns.  Our intention is not to replace your local Veterinarian, or to even turn you into one.  Our intentions are to give you the best possible chance of understanding when an animal may be sick and what you need to do.  What happens if you can't get a hold of your vet for any reason, or what happens if the vet is just not sure what may be wrong?  Use our material to better understand... 

You have the ability as well to use our material as a preventive measure. Use the information to protect your animals from outside influences that could make them sick, or not produce to their potential.  Not only that, recognize early signs and warnings that will allow you to lower your cost on medicine and vet visits. 

Purchase our material and see for yourself first hand what we provide.  I believe you'll agree that nothing else out there gives you more complete and up-to-date information.  If you have any questions, please feel free to call and ask for our customer service. 

Oh, and did I mention that we update and upgrade each product once a year?  That’s right, every year we will go through our material and update what needs to be changed.  That may be functionality of the program or user friendliness, to actually updating the information that we provide.

Go ahead, see for yourself what others have learned.
