High Yielders Benchmarking Group

To achieve the highest yields and most efficient farming, precise management of the farm as a whole is vital.

Our high yielders benchmarking group allows some of our most efficient farms to get together quarterly and discuss various topics to benefit the efficiency and yields of their herds. Prior to the meeting, data is collected from these farms and then these farms can be anonymously compared to see how they are performing compared to their contemporaries. Previous topics have included nutrition, fertility, ketosis and mastitis.

If you would like more information on our high yielders group then please contact us in the office.
