The transition Cow Index: a tool to measure your success

The  transition Cow Index: a tool to measure your success
Share

Dr. Nordlund designed the Transition Cow IndexTM based on the premise that milk yield on the first test of a lactation is a precise and reliable indicator of a successful transition. The TCITM calculation also takes into account more than a dozen other factors to compare the first test milk yield to the expected milk
yield for each cow.  This exclusive tool is more or less a dashboard you can use to help you better control and improve the management of the transition period in your herd.
