WelFarm is a web-based programme that works on the principle of measuring, managing and monitoring. Your vet clinic gathers the data and works with you to analyse your results and make plans to help you get the best from your herd.
We know the value of benchmarking financials within a business so it makes sense to look at your herd too. It also meets the Animals part of the Co-operative Difference for Fonterra suppliers.
Here's how it works
Dairy season period
What info goes into WelFarm throughout the season?
As each piece of data is entered into the programme, a dial will display on the dashboard.
The dials are colour coded and arrows populate on the dial to show where the farm sits compared to the regional and national benchmarks for each metric.
Once you are starting to build seasonal data within the WelFarm portal, you and your vet are able to dive deeper into some of your metrics, comparing across seasons using line charts, bar charts or tables.
The comparisons include the regional and national benchmarks and provide a great opportunity to analyse trends and assess impacts in areas you are trying to improve.
