Tap into upcoming webinars to learn how to use the Penn State Dairy Data Analysis Tools. The tools are four customized spreadsheets that focus on culling, somatic cell count, fat-to-protein ratio, and milk yield.

Web seminar participants can select any combination of the above categories and learn how to utilize provided tools to interpret a herd’s monthly data. Analyzing monthly test day records graphically and dynamically may aid in determining which cows or groups of animals are not performing to their optimal potential. Not only will participants learn alternative ways to interpret monthly records, they will also have access to specialized online tools to assist with the interpretation and assessment of monthly records.

All webinars are offered from 10:00 a.m. to noon, Eastern time. Here are the remaining dates in the series:

March 9, 2012 – Somatic Cell Analysis
March 23, 2012 – Fat to Protein Ratio Analysis
March 30, 2012 – Milk Yield Analysis

Join the webinar series to learn how you can use these tools to interpret and assess your test day records.
