Holstein Association USA's new Dairy Rhythms Herd Management Software will be showcased in the booth, with visitors having the opportunity for a hands-on demonstration by Holstein Association USA staff. Dairy Rhythms is a comprehensive herd management system which ties together the Association's database with dairy records processing by AgriTech Analytics. Designed with a user-friendly interface, the program gives producers quick and convenient access to not only traditional health, milk and reproduction data, but also genetic, pedigree and classification information for their Holstein cattle. Additionally, Dairy Rhythms features other components which might be of special interest to Registered breeders, including a module to manage your embryo transfer program. Visit us to learn how Dairy Rhythms can help you manage your Holstein herd more efficiently!
