Clinical trials

Herd Health has conducted more than 30 clinical trials on commercial farms over the past 20 years. These have ranged from hypothesis-based scientific investigations to controlled registration trials for animal pharmaceuticals. Herd Health has expertise in study design conduct and analysis and is familiar with various international standards such as Good Clinical Practice (GCP) and Good Laboratory Practice (GLP).  Herd Health operates a registered scientific establishment for conduct of field trials and has access to an animal ethics committee. We apply the ‘3Rs’ of ethical animal use in our study design and conduct.

We have proven ability to convert a statistical design into a practical, achievable and cost-effective field trial on a commercial farm. We take pride in our ability to safely guide the animals, farmers, workers, sponsors and registration authorities through the field trial process.
