Live Entry Data Session

Collected Data

  • Pregnancy Test (Wet V Dry)
  • Joining
  • New animal entry
  • Weaning event
  • Animal Health Event

We will now be returning to the shed to discuss the collected data and lean how to efficiently utilise this type of information.

This intelligence helps you make decisions such as:

  • Identifying less productive animals in order to reduce stock number and improve overall productivity of the herd or flock,
  • Treat only those animals at risk or requiring treatment,
  • Provide additional resources to those animals that will maximise returns,
  • Optimising time for intervention, selection or sale of less productive animals.
