Livestock farming is at the heart of rural life and with the widest farm practice footprint in the UK, our farm teams are woven into the fabric of these communities.
With over 10,000 farms, estates and small holdings under our care, they are our colleagues not customers and we're part of their team. As trusted partners to these businesses we look after the health of 14% of the cattle in the UK (nearly 1.5 million cattle) and 10% or >2.5 million sheep.
Whilst some of the veterinary practices that make up IVC Evidensia Farm Vets, have been working with local herds and flocks for over a hundred years, our inception is more recent. Our growth rate has, however, been astounding as mixed and farm veterinary practices in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland have joined us at an incredible rate since 2016.
Comprising of over 50 farm sites at the start of 2021, with more joining since, the wealth of knowledge, experience and ambition for the farming profession encompassed within IVC Evidensia Farm Vets is undeniable. Couple this with the proven track record of a supportive group, we believe we are one of the most exciting and progressive veterinary farm businesses to work for today, and for many years to come.

Lead Farm Vet Rhonda Anderson, describes the advantages to their team since becoming part of the IVC Evidensia Farm Vets community, as well as how their farm clients have benefited.
IVC Evidensia also has farm practices in Ireland, as well as the Netherlands, allowing for knowledge sharing not just across our UK practices, but with those in other countries too. For example, since 2019 the farm vet stream has welcomed our Dutch colleagues onto the IVC Evidensia Graduate Academy and we look forward to resuming our exchange programme for farm vets within our practices in the Netherlands as soon as travel restrictions are lifted.
