Many of you in Lancs will already be aware of the health reporting tool that the team use to report herd health stats. It’s been used for a number of years and has recently been undergoing an upgrade to make it more functional. Ian gives us some more information on what it can do.
It’s pretty exciting to do some upgrades to our health tracker knowing how valuable it’s been to our data reporting over the years.
The upgrade has made it an online version – officially in the cloud – that will give us greater flexibility for future analysis and make the reports a little more streamlined. It has also meant that this service is available across all of our practices.
The tool is a way for our teams to gather health incidence data about your farm and keep an ongoing picture of what is going on and allows us to monitor trends over time. We collect data at the end of each routine and input it to this now online tool.
What we have found over the years is that it is amazing when you review a years worth of data and it clearly shows you where there are areas to focus on.
