“Nothing I did seemed to make any
difference. I followed all the advice, took bloods and livers and still no answers. Now everything feels different and I’m below the
district average for empty rates and production is up by 6,000 kg MS this year.”

Leith Martin, Taranaki.

ANALYSE what your stock are actually eating

  • Sampling and laboratory analysis of pasture, feed & soil supplements

  • Review of your trace and macro element levels to understand the dietary risk



ADJUST the levels to meet demand

  • Implement the most appropriate and cost effective form of mineral supplementation

  • Manage reproductive risk in the longer term through appropriate fertiliser choices


PROFIT from the changes you’ve made

  • For every 2% empty rate reduction in an average 300 cow herd you save $7,000 in the first year

  • Addressing mineral imbalances leads to efficient and effective reproduction - and this means more days in milk!




Every empty cow loses you almost the market replacement cost. Add to that the costs of carrying more replacements, drug intervention, keeping cows you wanted to cull and the true cost is probably higher. And it’s not just the empty rate that’s important but the calving spread as well. A big spread is costing you money. 


Despite increased funding and programmes to improve reproduction, empty rates are still persistently high.  Why? Undiagnosed mineral imbalances in many NZ dairy and drystock herds are affecting reproductive performance. We help you manage potential risks present in the diet to achieve ongoing reproductive success.


Here's our tried and true process for reducing empty rates in your herd:
