Highlights

Fibre producers adopting this data-driven approach gain valuable insights that significantly impact their flock operations. 

Evidence-based selections strengthen flocks, leading to increased production and overall productivity. As a powerful decision-making tool, DSS empowers producers to make informed

decisions, optimising flock management and yielding measurable results in the production process.

•    Data-driven decisions increase revenue.
•    Informed decisions, reduce uncertainty.
•    Identifying areas for possible improvement.
•    Identify producers and passengers.

Identify. Inspect.
Improve.

The primary goal of DSS is to analyse the data gathered from farmers and interpret it to aid in their business decisions. This involves collecting important data points such as weaning weight, fleece weight, fibre diameter (in microns), mating weight, conception data, and mothering up data.

DSS is an additional tool that complements visual classing and reduces the guesswork. By utilising both techniques, farmers can make optimal and precise decisions. Through consistent measurement, effective management can be achieved.
