Grassroots Feed Check

This report harnesses the latest knowledge of the relationship between milk composition, energy status, fertility and risk of rumen acidosis. Grassroots Feed Check aims to provide those with an interest in a dairy herd’s nutritional status, with a full analysis of milk composition by stage of lactation. The reports are structured with a production overview panel that gives a snap shot of the herd’s heifer, yield and fertility performance, followed by milk compositional analysis by days calved. Current performance and trends over time are presented for freshly calved, mid-lactation, late-lactation and stale cows. Lists of cows are generated for animals with extreme variations in milk protein and butterfats. Vets and advisors are able to add comments where necessary and as standard with all Grassroots reports, sections can be added or deleted as required.
