Deer Velvetting SeasonDeer Velvetting Season

The velvetting season is due to kick off very soon and for those farmers qualified to velvet their own herds, it is a timely reminder to organise a supervisory vet visit for the supply of velvetting drugs for the upcoming season.

Vet Services Wairarapa would like to introduce Dr Urthe Engel, BVSc who has joined us from Marlborough earlier this year. Urthe is a fully NVSB accredited Supervisory Vet who has been facilitating the Tasman/Marlborough Advance Party for several years until November 2018, prior to moving north. She is happy to discuss your deer farming needs and can set up new supervisory contracts, provide training for NVSB accreditation for velvetting, as well as the annual reaccreditation supervisory visits.

Please contact the clinic with inquiries. Telephone 06 378 2662.
