Fertility is one of the major factors affecting the efficiency of any dairy herd. It can account for one of the major costs of production and also represents an area where significant improvements can be made.
Pd+ looks at dairy herd fertility management and covers issues such as herd nutrition, heat detection and managing block-calving herds. Pd+ sets a challenge to improve your profit by up to 2p/litre through sustained improvements in herd fertility.
Pd+ is a comprehensive manual bringing together research from DairyCo and other organisations around the world to make it the definitive guide to managing fertility.
