AgSource's KetoMonitorTM, introduced on January 28, 2015 is a new, comprehensive tool that combines laboratory analysis and individual cow data collected on test day to provide producers with a report that will estimate a herd's ketosis prevalence.
Genetic Summary Report
The Genetic Summary Report is designed to give dairy producers and their management team valuable information that will assist in making better breeding decisions. The summary relies heavily on identification of animals with a unique, official ID. The Council on Dairy Cattle Breeding (CDCB) cannot generate a proof on unidentified animals. Proper identification of each cow or heifer's sire, dam, and service sires will allow for more accurate analysis of data. The Genetic Summary Report analyzes both cows and heifers. Reporting heifer information allows for calculation of what genetics will be entering the herd.
Herd Selection Guide
Make breeding and replacement decisions for your herd based on each cow's individual economic value.
This report takes your DHI data to a new level by identifying and quantifying the biggest profit opportunities on your dairy.
As herds have become larger and total mixed rations are more prevalent, more managers use their DHI information to focus on herd, group or pen management rather than individual cows.
Production Management reports provide different ways to review, analyze and manage individual cow performance. As part of AgSource's base DHI Package, members can choose one of the three types of Production Reports. They also can select one or both of the other report formats as Optional Reports.
AgSource has set the industry standard in fresh cow management with the patented Transition Cow Index® incorporated into the comprehensive Fresh Cow Summary and the individual cow Fresh Cow List.
Controlling subclinical mastitis makes dairy producers money through higher premiums and increased production. AgSource provides a wide range of reports to help manage milk quality.
Milk Urea Nitrogen (MUN) levels are closely correlated to Blood Urea Nitrogen (BUN) levels, which reflect protein utilization by milking cows. AgSource has taken MUN to the next level with Management MUN - the industry-standard, quality control tool for nutritional management.
Whether it is premises or individual animal identification, one of the most important benefits AgSource offers is accurate Animal Identification Management. An added benefit of AgSource's reports is controlling inbreeding in today's modern herds.
Veterinarians, nutritionists, milk quality specialists, lenders and other consultants are a vital part of many AgSource members' operations. Providing these Service Groups with accurate and timely Business Copies and Electronic Downloads is an essential part of AgSource's business.
