A pilot trial has begun, seeking to understand a possible link between the methane cows produce and their genetics.
myHERD is the result of CRV’s partnership with farm software provider, FarmIQ, to develop the new herd recording and farm management application, which replaces CRV Insight.
With myHERD, farmers can now manage all their herd records and data from multiple farming operations using just one tool.
CRV Ambreed information and IT manager Andrew Singers says myHERD has been developed in New Zealand for Kiwi farmers.
“The development of myHERD reflects CRV’s desire to offer farmers a future-focused herd management platform.
“Using data captured on farm, myHERD will provide farmers with practical, accessible information so they can make better decisions across their entire farming business.
“FarmIQ’s Enterprise Dairy product can be integrated with myHERD, allowing farmers to incorporate data from a range of sources and link it all together – from interactive farm maps, environmental plans and health and safety to off-farm grazing and pasture forecasting.”
Using the additional FarmIQ Enterprise Dairy programme, myHERD can also be used by farmers with a diverse portfolio, from dairy to sheep and beef blocks, and run-offs, says Singers.
