- Murray & Bronwyn Braven, Western Southland

Frequently Asked Questions

For a new Franchise owner, how does Ultra-Scan support them in the initial stages?

Training is upwards of 3 - 4 weeks starting in an established region and then working alongside the trainee in their home region until he / she is competent. The emphasis is on accuracy, not just "In calf" or Empty" but also looks at dating and abnormalities.

Our Franchise owners are certified by an experienced technician which allows the new Franchise owner to be confident in the knowledge that they can provide a premium service to their clients. Training is also provided in all business aspects of owning a Franchise including use of our internet based database system, accounting and compliancy (if required), cold calling - although we prefer to call it hot knocking, marketing and advertising. Training is also provided in the use of our Android based computerised recording system which enables us to provide farmers with same day results from the scan including Empty Rates, Mating Dates, Calving Dates and abnormalities seen. Ultra-Scan organise the production of personalised flyers for each of the franchisees, advertising the seasonal services being undertaken. Gate signs are used and we can also assist with advertising blurb and layout for magazines, newspapers and newsletters.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do you apportion and area - number of herds or geographic?

Areas are generally divided geographically, using rivers, National Parks and roads as boundaries. The new areas are apportioned into approximately 180,000 - 250,000 cow territories. This allows the ability to divide, enabling an offset of initial investment . Team work is important as Franchise owners work together on larger herds.


Is the work year round?

We promote Ultra-Scan as a franchise with exciting and rewarding potential and our current services cover December - June for scanning, August - October for calf disbudding, August - October for Pre-Mating Scan. Many of our franchise owners also undertake an AB run through October - November. Promotional work, contact of clients and maintenance of equipment is done in the quieter periods.
