TasHerd offers herd recording and milk testing services to dairy farmers and dairy factories. It maintains a comprehensive database of historical and current data which provides valuable reporting to farmers, factories and industry.

Why Herd Record?

Herd recorded cows regularly produce significantly more than their non-herd recorded contemporaries. In the 2016/17 season, herd recorded cows produced 25% more litres of milk than non-recorded cows. While there are likely to be many reasons that explain the difference, access to good information is one of them. (2017 Australian Dairy Herd Improvement Report)

Improving the genetic merit of the herd, through culling low producers and choosing replacements from higher producing dams, has long been considered a key benefit of herd recording.
Research and practical farm experience show these major gains come not only from improved genetic merit but also from improved management and the ability to make better informed management decisions.

Early milk pregnancy test

TasHerd has been offering an advanced cow pregnancy test for several years now. The test can detect if your dairy cows are pregnant with just a single milk sample as early as 30 days after mating.

The test can now also be used to detect pregnancy in your goats using a milk sample.
