Fast and Friendly
DairyCOMP is a proven time-saver for both entering and retrieving information about a dairy herd. It has been shown to save over 50% of the time required recording daily information using manual cards. Duplicate entries are eliminated. For example: Breeding information is transferred as parentage information to a heifer calf’s record when she is born. This user-friendly program can be modified so that various reports and default values are set to the dairyman’s choices. The menu systems are setup to be easily followed, with a very helpful description of what each menu choice does.
Flexible and Adaptable
Flexibility is one of the cornerstones in the design of DairyCOMP. Each dairyman operates his dairy differently. Thus, an on-farm microcomputer program must possess adaptability. DairyCOMP accepts each individual management practices and ideas and allows them to be put to greater use through the computer. The dairyman controls the variety of reports and worksheets that can be generated. Information can be reported or summarized for a wide variety of criteria, including breeding, somatic cell counts, milk production, calf raising and semen inventory as well as user defined criteria. Such flexibility is being used by a wide variety of dairymen – from those that have registered embryo transfer donors to those that are 100% bull bred. DairyCOMP is being used throughout the USA, plus many countries around the world
Combined Activity and Production Information
DairyCOMP keeps production records together with the dairy activity information. This is done either with a DHIA ( Dairy Herd Improvement Association ) interface which transfers information from cooperating DHIA centers or private testers, or by doing production calculations within the program. DairyCOMP meets the standards set by the National DHIA for on-farm microcomputers. Production calculations use National DHIA formulas and tables.
