Increase your herd’s productivity and value with regular herd testing — the only way to accurately identify how your cows are performing.
Herd testing identifies:
- high producers you can use for breeding
- poor producers that need to be dried off or culled
- animals with mastitis that need treatment, drying off or culling.
Make informed breeding and culling decisions with an understanding of your herd’s breeding worth (BW) and production worth (PW). Herd testing helps you track and monitor your herd’s performance and assess how effective your management decisions have been.
Prove your herd’s worth
Regular herd testing increases the market value of your herd, by giving you more reliable BW and PW figures. Buyers are likely to pay more for animals with a proven history of both PW and BW.
Improve the quality of the national herd
Herd tests play a vital role in improving the quality of the national herd. Data from herd tests is used to identify productive animals that can be selectively bred to provide genetic gains for the dairy industry as a whole.
