Sustainability can appear to be a complex concept with many variables to consider – each one very different from the others.  From animal health and herd management, to the environment and well-being of farm workers, there are many issues that affect the profitability of your farm. What if you were able to identify the factors that limit your business profitability?

In the months ahead, Lactanet will be launching its new Sustainability Index. This index includes several indicators that tell a story about the health and longevity of your farm operation (i.e. number of cows in the 3rd lactation or more, calf mortality rate 0-24h, BHB, SCC). Using this exciting new tool, you will notice that the higher your index, the more profit per day you can achieve throughout the life of your business!

In January, you will be invited to a FREE webinar that will provide more details on how the Sustainability Index works. Later, you can participate in workshops of interest, where the trainers will guide you to identify solutions to improve your Sustainability Index. You will also be able to make comparisons with your peers and interact with producers that may have other management styles. Sign up and learn how the Sustainability Index can be added to your toolbox!
