The report uses existing herd data to calculate and present the key KPIs of herd reproductive performance. It then compares your herd's performance against targets based on the performance of the top 25% of the industry.
The results of your report can be used with the InCalf Gap Calculators to predict your increased income from making improvements in the measured management areas.

Interpreting the report
A report for your herd can be detailed, intermediate or basic and analyse up to three years of herd records to monitor performance over successive seasons. It supports seasonal, split calving and year-round calving herds (herds that take more than 25 weeks for 80% of the herd to calve).
The report is broken down into three sections and an annotated example is provided below:
- Overall herd reproductive performance
- Drivers of the 6 week in-calf rate
- Key indicators to areas for improvement
The InCalf Fertility Focus User's Guide contains explains what information is required to generate a Fertility Focus Report and how the Fertility Focus Report numbers are calculated and interpreted.
