Producing during a pandemic

During a global pandemic, we learned that essential workers are people who provide everyday services and goods that we depend on, like milk. We are back with Tom and Simon, to get their perspective on how dairy producers can find ways to adapt in a tumultuous marketplace.

This is more than just another cost. This is investing in the future.

CLARIFIDE® Plus is the first and only commercially available genetic test with cow and calf wellness traits plus novel fertility traits for Holsteins and Jerseys. Only found with CLARIFIDE Plus, the Dairy Wellness Profit Index® (DWP$®), is a unique and comprehensive animal ranking selection index that reveals the value of critical wellness traits. CLARIFIDE Plus and DWP$ allow dairy farmers to make informed decisions for their herd that can positively impact the six key financial drivers of net farm income (NFI).1

See how DWP$ impacts the six key financial drivers at your dairy.1

Net herd replacement costs

With CLARIFIDE® Plus, you'll be able to put a strategy in place to help optimize the inventory of your herd, increase herd life and production, and reduce net herd replacement costs.

Pregnancy rates

Daughter pregnancy rates are an important factor in the Dairy Wellness Profit Index® (DWP$®). New fertility traits from CLARIFIDE® Plus, including cystic ovary, cow abortion and twinning, can help producers select for cows with reduced days open to help support a more profitable reproduction cycle.

Heifer survival

Gain clarity on which calves are susceptible to certain diseases using the calf wellness traits from CLARIFIDE® Plus. Armed with this information, you can adjust your breeding or vaccination plans for a healthier operation.

Energy corrected milk

Wellness traits and herd management are key to profitability, but milk production traits such as energy corrected milk can be drivers of financial success. And CLARIFIDE® Plus gives you the data you need to see which cows are likely to be high producers.

Somatic cell count

CLARIFIDE® Plus offers mastitis traits that allow you to identify cows with a genetic risk to this disease. Catching this disadvantage early enables you to strategically manage your herd to meet your goals of better-quality milk and lower SCC.

Death loss

CLARIFIDE® Plus delivers a variety of wellness traits that will provide key indicators of a cow's projected livability and overall well-being, so your operation can strategically cull cows.
