Dairy farmers can now use a system that will help them keep records and they will be able to assess milk production, whether the nutritional needs of the herd are being met and the cost of additional feed.
While speaking during the training programme for the dairy advisory team, Fiji Cooperative Dairy Company Limited CEO, Kushmendra Prasad says analysis of data will assist farmers to make informed business decisions and to determine if they need to make changes to improve their productivity or profitability.
Prasad says the dairy advisors have been issued with tablet phones, to ensure they can ask the farmers key questions, and then enter the farmers’ data online and in real-time.
He adds the Bovi Base recording system is of particular benefit for those farmers who have a lot of knowledge about their herds and farms but do not have a system that allows them to analyse data and make informed decisions that could improve productivity.
