InCalf - Bull Management Practices


InCalf - Bull Management Practices is a risk assessment tool. It assesses bull management practices on the farm and the risk that they may reduce herd reproductive performance.

Bull management can have a significant impact on herd reproductive performance by contributing to higher empty rates. Ensuring good bull performance requires management of three key areas: selection (and rearing) of bulls, day-to-day management of working bulls and bull power. This tool enables you to compare your farm’s bull management with best practice, identify your risk level and assess the potential $ benefits of improved herd reproductive performance if this can be achieved through changes to bull management practices.
