ADHIS 2014 Report Released

Just released by the Australian Dairy Herd Improvement Scheme (ADHIS), the Australian Dairy Herd Improvement Report 2014 provides a snapshot of Australian dairy’s national herd across a range of performance criteria.

The informative report analyses production comparisons across region, breed, age, herd size, month of calving and sire type, highlighting our farming systems’
rich diversity.

Whilst the report is loaded with interesting statistics, we thought we’d share a few interesting observations with you…

Did you know?

  • 48 per cent of herds are herd recorded – a statistic lower than last year, however similar to five years ago.
  • Less than one third of herds (29 per cent) have recorded AI sires for most of their cows.
  • Daughters of AI sires produce approximately 52 kilograms more of milk solids than their naturally-bred counterparts.
  • More than one third of the productivity improvements achieved over the last 10 years can be attributed to genetics.

Produced in conjunction with the National Herd Improvement Association, the report also features highlights from Dairy Australia’s herd improvement projects
and Dairy Future CRC’s Genomic Information herds research.
