Alberta Beef Health Services (ABHS) has a mission to provide client focused veterinary services and expertise in beef cattle production medicine, animal welfare, food safety and field research.
The goal of ABHS is to work with our cattle clients to provide training programs that can give farmers a better way of doing things and to provide herd health programs that are evolving with the industry whether it’s a new vaccine, a better antibiotic or feed additive, or even the way we handle cattle.
We have a large focus on research projects, including partnerships with the government, pharmaceutical companies, and academic partners. At the end of the day we want to see that someone is better at their job and cattle are being better cared for.
