Breeding+ Section 3 Planning your approach

Published 2 July 12

The Breeding+ programme is your key to raising your herd's profitability through a strategic approach to breeding your cows.

Appreciating the strengths and weaknesses of your herd is the essential first step in planning any improvement programme.

The way in which you do this depends on the records available - from herd milk statements and observations through individual milk and performance records to detailed type assessment and pedigree information.
