The tables above show the average performance of herds using Promar Milkminder data. When using Promar data, it must be noted that a certain amount of caution should be taken. Although the sample size Promar use to collect the data is relatively large, it does not necessarily reflect the trends and performance of UK dairy herds. It is also worth noting that retrospective adjustments to the data may also occur. For more detailed information or to contact Promar click here.
