Herd Comparison

The Herd Comparison report provides a valuable summary of information on your herd in the areas of Daily Production, Yearly Production, Peak Production, SCC Summaries, Dry Cow Summaries, Reproduction Summaries and Herd Identification Data. This data is compared to data from herds with the same breed, herd size, from your local DHI association and the state.  This one page report is extremely useful in determining areas that may require management attention.

 

 


Herd Summary Reviewsummaryreview

The Herd Summary Review contains herd management information for the past 25 months.Sections feature test day averages, peak production, yearly averages, inventory, reproduction, and dry cow data as well as a culling history. It allows the producer to view changes or seasonal patterns in the herd over the past two years. This review allows the manager to evaluate trends within the herd. The Current County Average is also displayed for comparison purposes.

 


Herd Summary

The Herd Summary features sections entitled Herd Summary and Consultant Summary. The Herd Summary highlights production data including annual averages of the herd as well as peak and persistency data, management level milk and somatic cell data by lactation groups. The Consultant Summary section of the report focuses on the herd genetic profile, the number of cows entering and leaving the herd, and herd turnover, in addition to a herd inventory and reproduction summary.

 


Herd Totalherdtotal

The Herd Total Report is a flagship report of the AgriTech Analytics processing center.  While similar to a traditional Herd Summary, it provides production data for each test day of the past year in addition to annual totals. Unique to this report is the Fresh Cow and Fresh Heifer Production Summary. Featured on this report are various tables broken out by lactation groups. These tables include an analysis of 305 day/mature equivalent production, milk quality, reproductive statistics as well as cow, sire and service sire PTAs. 

 

 

Lactation Persistencylactationpersistency

Lactation persistency refers to the degree with which the rate of production is maintained as a group of animal progress through their lactation. The Lactation Persistency report separates the animals into twelve groups based upon the month of calving. Using the Best Prediction method of calculating lactation records, it highlights groups of animals that are performing either better or not as well as expected.  This report is very helpful in spotting trends within the herd as the report can track cohort group in a number of ways. The Lactation Persistency report is divided by lactation groups and can be evaluated based on fat corrected milk (FCM), energy corrected milk (ECM), milk yield, or pounds of fat.

 


Peak Production and Persistencypeakproduction

This summary features data regarding the Peak Production and Persistency of each lactation group as well as the overall herd. This information is divided by month of calving and indicates the number of cows in each category as well as that group’s pounds of milk and days in milk at peak in addition to the group’s management level milk and persistency. Data is displayed in both tabular and graphical formats. Cows that peak higher and have higher levels of persistency are typically the most profitable cows.

 

 

SCC Herd Summarysccherdsummary

The SCC Herd Summary provides an analysis of your herd’s somatic cell count status over the last twelve tests, year to date, and current sample day.  Breakouts of the data include the number and percent of cows by L2 score, the number and percent of new and chronically infected cows along with the dollar value of loss production attributed to high somatic cell counts. An additional feature of this report is SCC hotlist that includes the high SCC cows with the percent of the herd SCC.

 


Test Day Status testdaystatus

The Test Day Status report is intended to be a review of what occurred on test day and within the last test interval. Featured sections include test day results by pen, number of cows leaving the herd, current identification summary, milk shipped comparison, and test day milking schedules. The previous 13 test day totals and annual average production is also displayed.
