Dairy key performance indicators

Our key performance indicators (KPIs) help you understand how your business is performing compared with other dairy farms and highlight areas for improvement.

KPIs are a set of figures that help you manage your farm by showing, at a glance, which areas are performing well and those that need to be reviewed.

We’ve simplified the available on-farm measures into nine figures critical for good performance. These are a mix of technical and financial areas and are split by all year round and block calving so you choose the ones relevant to your system.

All year round calving KPIs

The key measures for farmers who calve all year round with no seasonal emphasis or period where the entire herd is dry.

Block calving KPIs

The KPIs for farmers who’s cows calve within a 12-week window (spring or autumn), get back in calf, peak in milk production and are dried off together.
