AHDB, in conjunction with SRUC is exploring the development of a herd efficiency tool for both beef and dairy farmers, using data already recorded through BCMS.
The aim of the tool is to provide some headline key performance indicators (KPIs) about their herd without the need for additional data entry beyond that already available in BCMS.
This tool will allow you to:
- See how a herd’s efficiency is changing over time
- Understand the impact and causes of gaps in performance within a herd
- Monitor performance using KPIs and benchmark against other herds
This project is part of work funded by AHDB to leverage additional industry benefit from the new Livestock Information Service when it goes live over the coming years, replacing BCMS for English producers.
Anyone interested in seeing a walkthrough of the prototype dashboard and giving their feedback can attend one of the following webinars:
Monday 6th December 7.30pm-8.30pm
