The Centre for Dairy Information
The creation of the Centre for Dairy Information has quickly established a new era of industry cooperation, developing a single, comprehensive and integrated database. This allows the storage and analysis of a wide range of data, transforming data into knowledge for informed management decisions.
This wealth of information not only allows the Centre for Dairy Information to be an industry storage resource, but importantly become an analytical centre of dairy information for management, benchmarking, education, information and research purposes. Essential tools in ensuring the UK dairy industry operates efficiently within today’s challenging environment.
This section contains National herd statistics, which provide information on the correlation between production and inspection (classification), progress made by the National herd and within certain regions and the ability to compare your own herd trends. You can also view the National production averages by looking at the data provided by Kingshay, which can be found in the ‘Management’ section.
The Management Section offers a range of information to help you manage your herd including the Kingshay Dairy Manager costing service, up to date industry production averages and useful farm management fact sheets highlighting current issues.
Along with this, a number of Herd Solution Sheets focus on managing a variety of challenges at herd level whilst within the ‘Tools’ facility, you can access a range of breeding and management tools to help take the hassle out of bull selection and pedigree recording.
