Dairy farmer: Tindall Family
Region: Western Victoria
Topic: Heifer genomics
Data drives efficiencies at Carapook Lachie Tindall has plenty of heifer calves. He also has a lot of herd data – including milk metre readings, genomic information, health, nutrition and mating records.
One thing he doesn’t have a lot of is time.
Efficiency is the key to making sense of all this data for his 650-700 cow herd. That’s one of the reasons why the dairy farmer from Carapook in Western Victoria, started genomic testing his Holstein heifer calves.
