Easy-to-Use | Designed for Business Users

Allow your management to focus on performance.

The problem with most management reporting tools is that they are designed with technical users in mind. With Style Intelligence, your busy managers won't need to spend hours learning the ins and outs of the software or brushing up on their SQL. In fact, SQL is entirely optional; only basic Excel skills are necessary. With software that is easy-to-use, executives can focus on what's really important: managing company performance.

Flexible & Fully Customizable

Allow your employees to create ad-hoc reports with versatile data mashup.

We’re not talking about one size fits all reporting here.  Style Intelligence enables users to assemble reports and dashboards with pages of content appropriate for each area of the business.  InetSoft also provides its users with facilities for filtering data, building metrics from measures, and other iterative analytic capabilities. In addition, with end-user defined data mashup, data can be pulled from many disparate sources and updated in real time. Geographic mapping, scorecarding, management of metrics, and the ability to set thresholds for action are also available, for more sophisticated users.

Intuitive | Visual, Interactive Reporting

Create dashboards that clearly communicate business conditions and needs.

The sole purpose of a management dashboard is to communicate information quickly. With Style Intelligence, metrics, KPI’s and sales figures are easily integrated into interactive dashboards, color-coded scorecards, and drillable reports. The software includes a visual composer, which provides a dynamic way to drag, drop, and associate data into charts, tables, and other presentation components. The reporting interface also includes a standard calendar display which simplifies selecting the desired time intervals for analysis and reporting. Individual users can tailor their dashboards in whatever ways makes the information most clear to them. Style Intelligence also allows direct publishing to Adobe Acrobat PDF, Microsoft Excel, Powerpoint, and Word.

What KPIs and Metrics Are Tracked in Dairy Farming Management Reporting?

1. Milk Yield per Cow

Definition: The average amount of milk produced per cow per day or per lactation period. Significance: This KPI is crucial for measuring the productivity of the herd. Higher milk yields indicate efficient feeding and good health management, directly impacting farm profitability.

2. Somatic Cell Count (SCC)

Definition: The number of somatic cells (mainly white blood cells) per milliliter of milk. Significance: SCC is an indicator of milk quality and udder health. Lower SCC values suggest better udder health and higher milk quality, which is important for meeting regulatory standards and achieving premium prices.

3. Feed Conversion Efficiency (FCE)

Definition: The ratio of milk produced to the amount of feed consumed. Significance: FCE measures how efficiently cows convert feed into milk. Improved FCE indicates better feed management and cost-efficiency, enhancing overall farm profitability.

4. Calving Interval

Definition: The average time between successive calvings for cows in the herd. Significance: Shorter calving intervals are indicative of effective reproductive management, which helps maintain consistent milk production levels and herd growth.

5. Heat Detection Rate

Definition: The percentage of cows in estrus (heat) that are detected for breeding. Significance: Effective heat detection is crucial for timely insemination and maintaining optimal calving intervals. Higher detection rates improve reproductive efficiency and milk production.

6. Pregnancy Rate

Definition: The percentage of cows that become pregnant out of those eligible for breeding during a specific period. Significance: A higher pregnancy rate reflects successful breeding programs and good herd fertility management, leading to better herd replacement and milk production.

7. Culling Rate

Definition: The percentage of cows removed from the herd due to various reasons such as low productivity, health issues, or old age. Significance: Monitoring the culling rate helps in understanding herd turnover and the reasons behind culling, which can inform management decisions for improving herd health and productivity.

8. Milk Fat and Protein Content

Definition: The percentage of fat and protein in the milk produced. Significance: Higher fat and protein content enhance milk quality and market value. These components are important for dairy products like cheese and yogurt, affecting farm revenue.

9. Body Condition Score (BCS)

Definition: A visual assessment of a cow's fat reserves, typically scored on a scale of 1 to 5. Significance: BCS is an important indicator of cow health and nutritional status. Optimal BCS is associated with better reproductive performance, milk production, and overall cow well-being.

10. Veterinary Costs per Cow

Definition: The total veterinary expenses incurred per cow. Significance: This metric helps in monitoring herd health management expenses. Lower veterinary costs typically indicate better preventive health measures and herd management practices.

11. Average Lactation Length

Definition: The average duration of the lactation period for cows in the herd. Significance: Maintaining an optimal lactation length ensures consistent milk production and effective herd management. Longer lactation periods may indicate reproductive issues that need addressing.

12. Labor Efficiency

Definition: The amount of milk produced per labor hour. Significance: Higher labor efficiency indicates better workforce productivity and effective labor management, contributing to overall farm profitability.

13. Replacement Rate

Definition: The percentage of cows replaced annually due to culling, death, or other reasons. Significance: A balanced replacement rate ensures herd sustainability and optimal milk production levels. High replacement rates may signal underlying health or management issues.

14. Mastitis Incidence Rate

Definition: The percentage of cows diagnosed with mastitis within a specific period. Significance: Mastitis affects milk quality and yield. A lower incidence rate reflects good udder health management and reduced veterinary costs.

15. Average Age at First Calving

Definition: The average age at which heifers give birth to their first calf. Significance: Earlier calving ages can enhance lifetime milk production and reproductive efficiency, impacting overall herd productivity.

16. Total Milk Production

Definition: The total volume of milk produced by the herd over a specific period. Significance: This KPI provides a comprehensive view of the farm's production capacity and efficiency, critical for financial planning and market supply.

17. Mortality Rate

Definition: The percentage of cows that die within a specific period. Significance: Lower mortality rates indicate better herd health and management practices, contributing to overall farm sustainability and profitability.

18. Cost of Production per Liter of Milk

Definition: The total cost incurred in producing one liter of milk. Significance: Understanding this cost is essential for pricing strategies and profitability analysis. Lower production costs indicate more efficient operations.

19. Dry Matter Intake (DMI)

Definition: The amount of dry feed consumed by cows. Significance: DMI is crucial for assessing feed efficiency and nutritional management. Optimal DMI supports better milk production and cow health.

20. Udder Health Score

Definition: An assessment of udder health based on various factors such as SCC, mastitis incidence, and physical examination. Significance: Good udder health is essential for high-quality milk production and cow welfare. Monitoring this score helps in maintaining optimal milk quality and reducing veterinary costs.
