Breeding Intensity – the risk of pregnancy
How do you measure your reproductive program? Creating pregnancies and improving the value of offspring (beef or genetic value) is a requirement for most dairies. Measuring the intensity of breeding and the resulting pregnancies is often done with the Breeding Intensity report.
In BoviSync the Breeding Intensity is calculated on a daily basis by the animal. The table intervals are the summation of all days within that date range. Animals that are recorded pregnant will have a minimum of 21 days eligible for breeding. All days in the corresponding 21 day interval of breeding and/or pregnancy for that animal will be measured accordingly versus animals that were eligible for breeding on those days within a date range. VWP is calculated individually from the voluntary waiting expiration date in the lactation or the first service (breeding or implant).
