Nutritional Management
Nutrition is of vital importance to cattle producers. Nutritional deficiencies can lead to poor reproductive performance, poor weight gains, lameness issues, and can contribute greatly to a variety of other disease processes. We at the Carthage Veterinary Clinic are pleased to offer nutritional management services to cow-calf, feedlot, and stocker operations. We utilize the Iowa State University BRaNDS program to assist cattle owners in balancing their rations and developing appropriate mineral and vitamin supplements. Please call our office to set up a time to check your rations!

Feedlot Management
Whether your feedlot is a few head or thousands, the Carthage Veterinary Clinic offers feedlot management services to fit your needs. Our doctors have experience and extensive training in Standard Operating Procedures (SOP) development, nutritional management, and vaccination protocols. We feel that prevention is the best medicine, but we are available as emergency needs arise. Please call our office and ask how we can assist your feedlot.

Our reproductive services can assist in the entire process, from synchronizing the heifers and cows to pregnancy diagnosis. We also perform bull breeding soundness exams to evaluate bull fertility.
