If your crystal ball is broken, you may be looking for other resources to help you make decisions in a challenging dairy economy.  Cornell University’s PRO-DAIRY Program provides a host of tools to help you make decisions.

Among the program’s dairy replacement evaluation tools are:

  • An Excel® spreadsheet calculating replacement heifer daily feed costs by group;
  • An Excel® spreadsheet that evaluates the impact of changes on heifer enterprises;
  • An Excel® spreadsheet determining replacement heifer labor efficiency; and
  • A 12-question “decision tree” to compare on-farm replacement raising versus contracting custom rearing versus buying replacements.

The resource list also includes access to tools for dairy farm business management, dairy facilities and waste management; dairy facilities drawings; environmental management; human resources management; and herd-health monitoring.

The list of resources can be found here.
