Customized Dairy Heifer Growth Chart Spreadsheet
Enter the average body weight and height of third lactation cows in your herd, average birth weight of calves, average services per conception for heifers, and the goal for age at first calving. From this information a customized growth chart is generated, allowing you to track heifer performance against the growth required to meet your goals. The customized growth goals are presented in table form, as well as in graphs for height and weight (using inches and pounds) and a graph of the percent of mature size. Users can plot growth data from heifers on these graphs to compare individual heifer performance to the goals.
