RULES AND REQUIREMENTS FOR DAIRY AWARDS

  • Farms must be enrolled on Infovet. Clients not signed up will be contacted but sign ups must be completed by the 1st of April. This includes Oceania/Fonterra access.
  • Reproductive measures will be taken from the Fertility Focus Report.
  • The whole herd must have complete and accurately recorded calving dates from the previous spring.
  • A common denominator of ‘Herd at PSM’ is used for many measures. Ensure that any culls or deaths which occurred before the PSM have been removed from your records to enhance your FFR.
  • Herds that contain greater than 35% heifers will not be eligible as these have unfair advantage over a herd with a standard age distribution.

  • The Judge’s decision is final.
