Before changing your farm system it’s important to assess the potential benefits (if any) and whether it fits with your future aspirations and goals.
This tool can be used as a start to the assessment process and by selecting the most relevant answer to the 10 questions below will offer guidance as to whether OAD may offer benefits in your circumstances.
After answering the questions, click 'calculate results' to add up your overall score. A red flag indicates that you'll likely need to change something before considering a switch to full season OAD (e.g. get your herd's average SCC down). The higher the score, the stronger the result. The maximum score is 10.
