Canada's Top Dairy Herds of 2020 Unveiled

Palmarès des meilleurs troupeaux laitiers canadiens 2019

Guelph, ON and Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue, QC (February 9th, 2021) – Lactanet Canada is proud to recognize excellence in dairy herd management by releasing the Canadian Top 25 Herds, based on the 2020 Herd Management Score results. The evaluation was completed at a national level amongst a total of more than 7,000 herds.

The Herd Performance Index allocates points for performance in different management areas, including milk production, udder health, reproduction, heifer rearing and longevity.  It is an excellent indicator of overall herd performance, a great tool to monitor herd progress from year-to-year, and is valuable for benchmarking within various production systems (free stall, tie stall, robotic, organic).

Congratulations to all these producers for outstanding herd performance.
