Calving Rate by Age
How to read the graph
Use this graph to evaluate how your herd calved. You can see the
percentage of cows that calved throughout your calving period, to help you
identify if your calving is too spread out.
The dotted grey line represents the industry
target calving rate as per the InCalf program.
Note: Targets for first calvers will differ according to when their
First calvers with the same Mating Start Date as the herd have a 3 week
target of 75% and 6 week target of 92%.
First calvers mated one week ahead of the herd have a 3 week target of
82% and 6 week target of 96%.
First calvers mated two weeks ahead of the herd have a 3 week target of
87% and 6 week target of 98%.
First calvers mated three weeks ahead of the herd have a 3 week target
of 92% and 6 week target of 99%.
The solid grey line shows your herd's actual daily
cumulative calving rate.
The circle on the left shows the proportion of cows in the group
selected that are aged 2 years, 3 years, 4-8 years and 9+ years.
Planned Start of Calving date (PSC) is calculated as 282 days from the
last actual Mating Start Date (MSD).
Mid-point of calving signals the date upon which 50% or more of the cows in the herd have calved.
