Update to Your Test Day Reports

January, 2018

In response to the ongoing emphasis on daily fat yield per cow, we have updated the Test Day Summary section located at the bottom of the page on your  Herd Summary or Herd Monitor reports. With this update, we have removed the ‘Prot/Fat Ratio’ column and replaced it with the ‘Daily Fat Yield’ column (example shown below).

Daily Fat Yield is an increasingly important number to be aware of, especially with ongoing quota growth and demand for fat production. This column allows you to monitor the daily fat yield trend in your herd so that you can quickly identify any variations in your fat production over time.
