Cattle Services

Beef Cattle

Tableland Veterinary Service has had a long and diverse relationship with cattle clients over most of Northern Queensland from Charters Towers to Richmond and north to the Gulf of Carpentaria and Cape York as well as the coast and on the Atherton Tablelands.


Like most clinics, TVS provides routine pregnancy diagnosis and cattle care for all its beef cattle clients. The team travels many thousands of kilometers each year servicing these clients for a range of services including pregnancy diagnosis and testing, bull breeding soundness examinations (BBSE), emergency conditions as well as disease investigations and health visits.

TVS has trained its veterinarians in fetal aging and now provides an advanced pregnancy diagnosis and management tool for its extensive beef clients. This enables properties to divide their herds
into different groups and to provide specific feeding and nutritional plans depending on the gestational age of the pregnancy. Studies have shown that this enables clients to increase their efficiency and productivity while managing their costs, feeding cattle in a more targeted and effective way. 

Pregnancy diagnosis can also be performed in cattle using ultrasound, and some of our veterinarians use ultrasound extensively in early pregnancy diagnosis (5 – 6 weeks of gestation). Ultrasound does not replace manual pregnancy diagnosis and is used as an adjunct to manual pregnancy testing.

Tableland Veterinary Service has many veterinarians that have a large amount of experience with beef cattle and are able to assist with a wide variety of requests from our clients.
