Elevate Your Production Efficiency


For decades, the focus of genetic selection has been on increased levels of production of the dairy animals in your herd. More recently, attention has also been paid to functional traits to reduce the costs of production and/or increase the longevity of dairy cattle.


For the April 6th 2021 Genetic Evaluation release, production efficiency will include BOTH genetic selection for high production and feed efficiency.  dfsdsdgsfgsdgdgd sdgsdgf

Optimisez l'efficience de votre production


Pendant de nombreuses années, la sélection génétique mettait l'accent sur l'augmentation des niveaux de production des animaux de votre troupeau laitier. Récemment, les caractères fonctionnels ont également retenu l'attention afin de réduire les coûts de production et/ou d'augmenter la longévité des bovins laitiers.

Dans le cadre de la publication des évaluations génétiques du 6 avril 2021, l'efficacité de la production comprendra à la fois la sélection génétique pour une production élevée et l'efficience alimentaire.

Artificial intelligence: Fact or fiction?

Who hasn't heard about artificial intelligence (AI) in the past year? Although development began as early as World War II, AI has become an important topic and has made its way into our lives and barns.  What benefits could it have for the agricultural world?

Sub-clinical Ketosis Screening

It is important to monitor BHB levels closely during the transition period to intervene quickly when cases of hyperketonemia occur in the herd.

Several tools are available to screen for sub-clinical ketosis, but these tools can sometimes raise several questions. Let's try to shed some light on the matter!

It’s time to have your say in Canadian dairy research: Answer Dairy Farmers of Canada’s survey to help guide strategic research priorities for the future

Dairy Farmers of Canada (DFC) is inviting dairy farmers, dairy researchers and students, as well as sector stakeholders to complete an online survey about future priorities for Canadian dairy research.

The responses will help identify research priorities to update of the National Dairy Research strategy, which will guide investments in science over the next five years. DFC’s first National Dairy Research Strategy was published in 2016.

The online survey will be accessible from April 1 – 23, 2021 at DairyResearch.ca. It will take approximately 15 minutes to complete. Although the survey answers will be kept confidential, participants will have the option to leave their name and email address to enter a draw to win a $200 gift certificate from Lactanet and three $50 gift certificates from DFC’s Blue Cow Shop.

Complete the survey as of April 1, 2021

Your participation in the survey is vital to growth and innovation in the sector. DFC invests about $2 million annually in dairy production, and human nutrition and health research. This amount is leveraged to increase investments in research to approximately $8 million annually through matching funding programs and partnership contributions.

Please share the survey link with your dairy colleagues!
