Analysis to maximize health and productivity for animals beginning lactation


Evaluate the effectiveness of management strategies:
  • Intuitive graphs of herd production, reproduction and udder health data
  • SPC interpretations
  • Easy imports from all major dairy software

Analyze data from different perspectives
  • Segment analyses by parity, groups or pens, calving months or calving season
  • Further define the database by importing only specific animals or a portion of the entire herd

Customize Your Setup with detailed setup options:
  • Voluntary Waiting Period - set a different VWP for 1st lactation and 2nd + lactations
  • Groups - restrict analysis to certain groups
  • Dates - set last preg exam date, first date for open analysis, and earliest day to detect pregnancy. Also establish a date for comparing results before and after.
  • Goals - establish your own goals for % pregnant by first, third and sixth cycle and program compliance
  • Specify milk weight for fresh cows - establish low 1st test milk weight for Fresh Cow Analysis
  • Specify cows - include or exclude designated repro culls or do not breed animals
