Waikato Dairy Farming Experts in Scanning
While Scan Spec is a recent endeavour, our team has been in the New Zealand dairy farming industry for over 35 years. Based in Waikato, we have been providing the best care and imaging techniques possible since director Lief Johansen formally started the company in 2009 to provide a more personal approach to animal pregnancy testing and ultra sound scanning. Lief’s history began when he and a colleague introduced Dairy Herd Scanning to the New Zealand dairy farmer. This provoked worldwide interest. Following on from that venture, Scan Spec NZ Ltd was created to provide farmers a greater choice of expertise in a profession that had become tainted with less than optimum results. About Us

While the dairy industry in the Waikato district has, for the most part, been experiencing high commodity returns, we face a serious dilemma as low fertility and conception rates have begun to have a negative impact on our industry. Whatever the cause, there is an increasing need for high quality technicians in the field of ultra scan pregnancy testing, fertility detection and aid, in order to counteract the effect of so many missed calving opportunities. Inexperienced technicians and poorer quality techniques can lead to more lost opportunities for your business. Our innovative new methods of pre mating and pregnancy scanning for dairy herds has the potential to revolutionise the sector. Scan Spec has been active in pioneering pre-mating scanning to detect infections and ovarian cysts which can affect the health and fertility of your animals. It is our hope that this process will in time become a normal part of pre-mating just as scanning for pregnancy has become a standard practice after mating. At Scan Spec, we are dedicated to the future of the dairy industry. Help us ensure the health of your cows and goats today to keep dairy farming at the forefront of New Zealand’s economy.
