Animal Husbandry Equipment
As you may already know, we specialize in medication delivery equipment. We have put together a fantastic range of these products and would confidently compare our gear against any other brands on the Australian market.

Vet-Mec Animal Health Products
In September 2017, we started stocking the Vet-Mec range of animal health products from Australian company Chem-Vet. We will be taking these products along with us to a number of upcoming field days and trade shows throughout 2018. In addition, these products will be available both on our Website (currently the Injectable and Dog Wormer have been uploaded onto our Web Site, the balance will be added over the next few weeks) and in our new retail store at 575 Midland Highway, Huntly. We have based our prices off Chem-Vet’s direct pricing (no extra mark-up), so if you already use these products you can simply buy them from whichever supplier is most convenient for you.

Intensive Australian swine farming operations on both small and larger scale farms include pig vaccinations or treatments that need to be carried out regularly, many of which are given to younger pigs. This means large numbers of shots are required to treat entire litters of pigs, a process which can be both time consuming and labour intensive. Continue reading Pig vaccination made simple
