Using color coding, graphics and an intuitive layout, the Herd Summary provides a clear and concise picture of where your herd is today and where you've been over the past year. The Production, Reproductive, Genetic and inventory sections not only identify problem areas but allows users to drill down and identify causes.
Extensive use of graphs brings home that a picture is worth a thousand words. Trends, both good and bad, are easy to identify.
Look closer and see if management changes you made brought about improvements.
