  • With AB completed for many, now’s a good time to review mating performance to date and what it means for the decisions you make for the remainder of the mating period. 

    Have the targeted number of cows been mated?  If not, what might the reasons be?  Review your Return Interval Analysis report - what does it tell you about the accuracy of the heat detection?  If that’s looking OK, why aren’t the cows that should have been cycling being mated?  Is there an animal health issue that needs to be addressed? 

    Remember, the results achieved this mating will determine how next season starts.  Failure to have >75% of your herd calving in the first six weeks of next season will affect not only the potential lactation length, but also the number of replacements that will be available and the number and category of cows that you’ll be able to cull.  There’s still a window of opportunity to address some of these issues, but it’s not going to remain open for much longer.
