Do I need to go through TRICH CONSULT with my veterinarian?

No, there is enough information provided in the program for a producer to answer the questions.  You will receive a report at the end of the program, please discuss this with your veterinarian, as well as any questions that you have.

Is TRICH CONSULT only valuable for herds with known TRICH problems?

No.  Herd’s that are unsure of their Trich status and herds that do not have Trich, can use Trich CONSULT to develop prevention and surveillance strategies.  Herds that are positive for Trich can use Trich CONSULT to develop eradication protocol or create methods to minimize the effects that the disease will have on their herd.

What if I can’t do all the things recommended by TRICH CONSULT?

Trich CONSULT asks a series of questions regarding management practices on your operation.  While these management practices are ideal for Trich eradication and/or prevention, it may not be possible to follow all of them on your specific operation.  Trich CONSULT will provide feedback based on your answers that will help you evaluate how important it will be to implement these practices in regards to Trich eradication and/or prevention.
