Once your mating period is in full swing, or when you have come to the end, there are a number of reports available to help you make informed decisions about your herd’s progress and reproductive performance. These reports vary - from helping you maintain accurate records by identifying animals that have not yet been recorded with a mating, through to highlighting areas of on-farm practice that could benefit from additional education such as heat detection.
Cows without Matings
Use this report during mating and once you have finished your mating period to see a list of animals that have not cycled or been mated during the mating period. This report will also be an early indicator of information that may be on error and need correcting or assist with your vet check when planning your next steps for non-cycling animals.
Summary of Matings
Check this report for animals that have had more than one mating or short returns. This may highlight opportunities for additional education to identify animals on heat.
By identifying short return intervals, or cows that have had mating dates close to natural mating, you will have an early indication of animals that may have uncertain sires recorded against them.
