Selecting the right index for you…

There are now 3 key indexes in the UK; Profitable Lifetime Index (£PLI), Spring Calving Index (£SCI)

and Autumn Calving Index (£ACI) for you to choose from. With this in mind, we have outlined below

the key elements of the new £ACI and the evolved £PLI indexes in order to help you decide which one

would be best suited to you and your herd.

£PLI

Profitable Lifetime Index is an index developed for all year-round calving herds in the UK.

£PLI will:

• Promote yield while protecting milk quality

• Increase emphasis on fertility

• Improve functional type – feet & legs and

udders

• Increase emphasis on longevity

• Improve udder health and lameness

• Reduce costs associated with maintenance

• Improve calving performance

The percentage

weightings of traits

within the £PLI

Efficiency 11.9%

Production 34.9%

Survival 15.3%

Fertility 13.8%

Udder Health 14.3%

Leg Health 8.2%

Calving ability 1.7%

The £PLI value represents the additional profit each sire is expected to return from each of its milking

daughters over her lifetime.

Using £PLI to select the best bulls will breed profitable cows for typical all-year round calving UK herds.

£ACI

The Autumn Calving Index is an index developed specifically for UK autumn block calving dairy farmers.

The index is expressed as a financial value and is presented on an all-breeds base.

The newly developed £ACI:

• Promotes milk quality with more weight on volume

than £SCI

• Places strong emphasis on fertility

• Selects for reduced maintenance cost

• Improves udder and leg health

• Places strong emphasis on longevity

• Promotes easier calving

• Improves functional type – feet & legs and udders

The percentage

weightings of traits

within the £ACI

Udder health 11.3%

Production 31.2%

Fertility 18.3%

Calving ability 2.0%

Efficiency 15.2%

Survival 18.6%

Leg Health 3.4%

The £ACI value represents the additional profit each sire is expected to return from each of its milking

daughters over her lifetime.

Using £ACI to select the best bulls will breed profitable cows for an autumn calving UK herd.

Targeted breeding strategy brings benefits

13

Adopting the most appropriate herd breeding strategy can

help develop a sustainable business and reduce costs. But

how do you plan the best approach?

Huw Lloyd, Genus ABS Technical Services Director gives some

of his thoughts.

Q: We have seen an upsurge of interest in

the importance of breeding strategy.

Why is this —hasn’t having a clear strategy

always been important?

It’s true that having a breeding strategy has

always been a foundation for developing a

successful business.

The ability to drive genetic improvement is

greater than ever, with innovative and widely

available breeding technologies such as elite

and proprietary genetics, sexed genetics and

tools to assist planning and implementation.

Beef genetics have also developed specifically

for the dairy market.

This, combined with the advancement of

breeding services and technologies, such

as activity monitors, have greatly increased

reproductive efficiency and pregnancy rates.

Concurrently, the milk market environment means

an increased focus on the milk market can deliver

significant returns and support sustainability.

Continual improvement and cost efficiency

is key to long-term sustainability.

Q: What do you believe the objectives

of a successful breeding strategy

should be?

They should be about meeting dairy

needs — driving improvement,

maximising income and controlling costs.

You need to set out to produce the next

generation of replacement heifers the farm

needs from the fewest but best genetic merit

animals, targeting the optimum number of

heifers to achieve your herd size aspirations,

whether maintaining herd size or changing

numbers.

Producing and selling surplus heifers can

still be an option for some but needs to be

a planned activity. Maximising the income

from the beef calf crop by producing the

maximum number of the highest quality

calves possible is another key objective

for many.

And finally you need to control the costs

of getting cows in calf and rearing heifers.

Q: In your view, what is the target number of heifers? Do you think farmers

are guilty of producing and rearing too many and inflating rearing costs?

The target depends on the farm. In a closed herd looking to maintain herd size, the target is

to calve down enough heifers a year to at least match the number of herd exits. This is never

a precise science but you should have a pretty good idea of the number you actually need. If a

herd is changing size then the target has to reflect both the number of herd exits and the rate

of expansion.

There has always got to be a degree of flexibility to mitigate factors such as disease threats,

such as TB, but rearing too many heifers has a big impact on costs unless there is a good

market for surplus animals.

Equally, rearing too few heifers can leave you vulnerable to disease risk and increased exits, while

also reducing the rate of genetic improvement. Increasingly farmers are looking to ensure only the

very best heifers are retained for their needs.

The important thing is to have a target and work to it, and one

of the planning tools that can help farmers includes our heifer

optimisation tool.

Q: Clearly a key part of any strategy nowadays must be

the successful application of sexed semen technologies.

How have farmers adapted to these?

The use of sexed genetics is rising but farmers are still using

a mix of sexed and conventional dairy straws leading to the

continued production of low value dairy bull calves. Farmers

are still unsure how many female pregnancies are required

and often there is limited reliable data to help them plan.

However, new and repeated data on the use of Genus ABS Sexcel

sexed genetics on heifers and cows can mean farmers can have

greater confidence and can plan the number of female pregnancies

more robustly.

Q: What is the new data and what does it show?

It is based on the largest dataset available in the UK, using

information collected on inseminations and pregnancies

through the RMS service. Genus ABS R&D trial data shows

an improved performance when using Sexcel genetics,

proven by better relative conception rate which is a direct

comparison with conception rates to conventional semen.

The data included 37,879 AI events in maiden heifers with

19,667 Sexcel inseminations.

With Sexcel, farmers were achieving better than a 90% relative

conception rate to conventional semen when used for first and

second services in maiden heifers. The same UK case study

captured feedback and results from Sexcel use in cows from

Genus ABS RMS herds.

Q: But what does this actually mean on farm?

What are the financial implications?

If we can optimise heifer numbers we can reduce the total rearing

cost and with heifers costing on average £1,819 to rear to calve in

at two-years-old there could be big savings to be made.

Equally, by increasing the efficiency of the production of female

replacements, we can produce more beef calves and so increase

the value of the beef calf crop, especially if we work closely with a

buyer and produce higher quality calves.

The table compares the impact of a focussed heifer optimisation

strategy for a 200-cow herd, calving in at two years old with a 25%

replacement rate and planning a contingency of 10% more heifers

than required. The conception rates are constant between the two

scenarios and calf values and rearing costs are standardised. The

only difference is the basis of their insemination policy.

The first year financial benefit of optimising heifers and producing more

beef for the 200-cow herd is £18,052 or £90 per cow. Assuming the

herd is producing 8,500 litres per cow, this is equivalent to just over

1ppl on the milk price.

We are not talking small increases but a major impact and this

discounts the impact of fewer heifers on work loads and time and

available space and forage for the cows. Plus, this number will

increase in subsequent years as savings are made on two batches

of heifers being reared each year.

Reviewing breeding objectives and planning based on farm

specific needs and data should occur annually with regular

pregnancy monitoring to keep on track.

During the period a total of 201,860 inseminations were recorded.

In total 13,801 Sexcel

inseminations in first to third

lactation cows were recorded,

which gives the biggest data

set of sexed genetics use on

milking cows in the UK.


The results for these farmers showed a relative conception

rate matching the results with maiden heifers. 6,159

Sexcel inseminations in first lactation cows resulted in a 38%

conception rate, equivalent to a 90% relative conception rate

with conventional inseminations. The data show the level of

performance than can be achieved and therefore used as a

basis for more reliable planning.

**Key P

Epidem


Really

Makes

Sense.

Genus ABS is committed to providing reproductive management services

that drive profit from genetic progress and reproductive efficiency.

And the results speak for themselves....

Over 255,000 cows are now on RMS

(Reproductive Management System), achieving an

average Pregnancy Rate of 21%, with top herds

achieving 30% and more.

The difference between 13% and

21% Pregnancy Rate could mean an

extra 2ppl milk or £50k profit.*

*Based on average RMS herd size of 280 cows

RMS herds average 21-day Pregnancy Rate 21%

13%

NMR herd average Pregnancy Rate 13%**


RMS has assisted us to achieve such good results,

it gives us one less thing to think about, we work very closely with

our superb technicians, it is a team approach.

If I were asked if I would recommend the Genus ABS RMS service,

without a doubt it’s a no brainer.

James Lloyd, Herdsman at T Williams & Son, Fforest Farm, Wales.

Why I partner with Genus ABS...


I am constantly looking to push my herd forward,

a custom index from Genus ABS has allowed me to do

just that. I believe every farm is different and therefore

customisation is key in achieving a profitable business.

From the start I was given expert advice and support

from the Genus ABS genetic services team.

Mark Robinson, Woodhey Dairy, Cheshire.

Graph and new picture to follow

A genetic review was run on my milking herd to understand

where we are now and to be able to understand what I

needed to focus on to correctly select sires for the future.

My whole view of a bull’s proof changed, I was made more

aware of individual traits and able to change their emphasis in

my index and was then able to make more strategic breeding

decisions.

My GMS report now ranks my herd on their suitability to

my dairy and I now know which cows to breed to dairy or

beef, to maximise profitability, as well as easily find sires

to fit each individual animal and ultimately achieve all

herd breeding goals.

As you can see the pregnancies we have made in the first

6 months of this year will provide more genetic progress


than we have seen in the last 10 years.
