InterHerd+ KPI Study

NMR and The University of Reading produce an annual study of performance in Holstein Friesian herds, covering the 12 months up to 31st August each year. The 500 study herds are selected to ensure they are representative of all black and white herds (from the best to the worst) that milk record with NMR in the UK. The study, led by Dr James Hanks at The University of Reading, describes the range of performance across the 500 herds for over 30 fertility, production and health parameters.  

Primarily these studies provide farmers and advisers with up to date information on performance levels currently achieved in the UK and the variation between herds. These results are used in InterHerd+ to highlight individual herd strengths and weaknesses. They also provide farmers with realistic and achievable target values. The targets are set at the level achieved by one in four farms.
