Ross Anthony Livestock Services (RALS Ltd) was established in 1995 and is a professional and comprehensive provider of livestock services.  The company was incorporated on 6th March 2014 and became a Limited company on April 1st of the same year.  Based near Bilsborrow in Lancashire and located close to the M6, M65 and M55 allowing excellent access throughout the North West.  Ross Anthony Livestock Services Ltd currently offers its services across Lancashire, South Cumbria, North and West Yorkshire.   The company also operates in Wales and further afield on request.

RALS Ltd offers services to sheep, cattle, goat, alpaca and horse owners alike. Those offered to sheep owners/farmers include sheep shearing, belly clipping, tailing/crutching and drenching by qualified and experienced staff with both large and small flocks catered for.   We are also able to help small flock owners/small holders with various care procedures and also to offer guidance with such tasks.

Company front man Ross Anthony is an experienced cattle foot trimmer having trimmed with the Dutch Method since 2004.  Ross is fully licensed (formerly known as Category 1) with the National Association of Cattle Foot Trimmers (NACFT).  For trimming on farm, Ross uses a fully hydraulic, upright mobile cattle crush of his own design, manufactured in 2011.

Alongside the foot trimming, we also offer a cattle locomotion scoring service to greatly reduce lameness issues and improve cattle welfare and mobility on farm.  Other services include cattle clipping for slaughter, market or general well being.  We can also offer assistance with record keeping requirements for both cattle and sheep.

We are delighted to announce that we can now offer a faecal egg counting service for sheep, cattle and horses.  This extremely valuable service will help you to design a more effective worming program, monitor worm counts in certain fields/areas of land, improve stock health and vitality and reduce your worming costs.  Crucially, this will also contribute towards reducing the growing issue of resistance to worming/drenching treatments.

RALS Ltd is now able to extend its services further to horses.  As well as faecal egg counts to assist the development of your worming program and potentially lessen worming costs, we also offer instruction (flatwork/dressage), clipping and show/sales preparation.

A friendly and dedicated team of staff at Ross Anthony Livestock Services Ltd looks forward to assisting you with your livestock needs be they large or small.  Further details of all our products and services can be found here on the website.  If a service is not listed but you feel that we may be able to help then do give us a call.
