Optimal Dairy Systems - Milk forecasting calculator
The Milk Forecasting Calculator enables you to compare your current system against a range of alternative scenarios and includes profiles for spring and autumn block calving herds supporting our optimal dairy systems approach.
The tool can be used to see how changes to herd size, yields or calving patterns will impact your business. To aid planning, comparisons can be made over a three year period and feed costs added to see the impact of any changes over time.
As an excel based tool this calculator uses farm information on herd size, average yield and calving data alongside herd lactation curves to give producers information on the milk production potential for the herd.
