DHI: Herd Health Frequency vs. Reproductive Performance (sneak peek!)
We are analyzing clinic wide DHI data from the previous year’s annual report for our dairy producers on test. Our goals in doing so are to observe general trends, celebrate successes, and identify areas for improvement.
Preliminary evaluation of the reproduction data demonstrates that on average, reproductive performance appears to be better in herds that schedule regular herd health visits (weekly/biweekly) versus sporadic or infrequent visits.
We will continue to analyze the DHI data in more detail and are looking forward to sharing our additional findings with you in next month’s newsletter!
