The tables above show the regional breakdown of the performance of herds using Kingshay Dairy Manager recording system. These figures should be examined with care, as although the sample is relatively large, the figures are not necessarily representative of the performance of average UK dairy cows. The data is also subject to retrospective changes. For more detailed information or to contact Kingshay click here.
