Brantford, ON – September 29, 2022 - Holstein Canada (HC) is pleased to announce a renewed partnership with Dairy Farmers of Canada (DFC) for delivering cattle assessment services to farms across Canada under the Animal Care module of proAction®.
DFC first contracted Holstein Canada in October 2016, and since then, Holstein Canada has been providing excellent cattle assessment services via their professional team of Assessors and Classifiers.
Cattle assessments are an important proAction requirement, involving an evaluation of a sample of cattle on every farm for body condition, hock, knee, neck and mobility scores. The resulting reports indicate where a farm is scoring well and where a farm may have an opportunity for improvement. The reports enable farms to track their progress and strive for excellence over time.
