One of the objectives of our Lactanet partnership (CDN, CanWest DHI and Valacta) is to combine our efforts and offer you more value.


In the coming weeks, Lactanet will be introducing a new website and Internet Reports portal called MySite. Your very own one-stop shop! The new modern, mobile responsive, bilingual platforms will have many enhanced features that we will be sure to share with you, however, during this transition there are two small but important details to know.


Firstly, when accessing your Internet Reports from the CanWest DHI site, you will be asked to validate your email address to ensure that we have your correct current email. This prompt will allow you to have clear access and ultimately, a better experience into MySite once it is launched. Secondly, as the Lactanet MySite replaces the CanWest Internet Reports entry, your PIN log-in will become your password.


If you encounter any challenges along the way, do not worry. The system can generate new passwords and our friendly 1-800 Customer Service Desk staff are available to help along the way. In fact, access to your Internet Reports from the CanWest site will continue for a period of time, even after the Lactanet MySite is launched.


We can’t wait to show you all of the upcoming features, including an interactive dashboard with ‘at a glance’ functionality to track your herd's performance and quickly take action. Stay tuned for more information!




Recently, Lactanet unveiled the top herd rankings for 2020 and paid tribute to outstanding herd management in Canada. Their results are truly inspiring! Congratulations once again to all those who stood out.

Our annual Herd Summary Reports are mailed out to Lactanet customers at the end of February and received in March. In addition to the Herd Management Score, which reflects the vitality and profitability of the herd, dairy producers can’t wait to see their bundle of six essential reports and benchmarks that summarize their progress.


Beginning in 2020, the Udder Health calculation for our annual Herd Management Score and Benchmarks has had a minor change from Average Linear Score (LS) to Somatic Cell Count (SCC). This change came from requests from dairy producers. SCC is an indicator of milk quality, udder health, and impacts revenue.
