The transition period is critical to her success. How you manage it, depends on the information available to you.
AgSource’ Fresh Cow Summary features the Transition Cow Index®, a comprehensive and objective measure of transition cow management, allowing you to benchmark the effectiveness of your transition cow program for improved long-term profitability.
- Compares your herd’s fresh cow performance to an industry standard
- Evaluates transition management by month of calving with one year of history
- Measures early lactation turnover
- Calculates the difference between expected and actual fresh cow performance
- Identifies individual cows with transition problems and those at risk for ketosis
Monitoring changes month to month will help you reach and achieve your dairy’s transition cow goals.
TCI® was developed in partnership with the University of Wisconsin School of Veterinary Medicine. Using data from over 550,000 cows, researchers developed algorithms to calculate expected 305-day milk production. This calculation uses factors such as prior lactation, age, milking frequency, breed, days dry, month of calving and more.
