Milk yield oracle

ANNUAL milk production can now be predicted more accurately using individual cow data, claims Bibby.

It has developed a new computer program for use by its dairy specialists which can accept data on disc from National Milk Records, Scottish Livestock Services, United Milk Records or from farm records. And, during the year, actual data can replace predicted information.

The effect of different management approaches on individual cows can also be seen, it adds. Use is free for Bibbys Dairylink customers (01733-555552).
