The transition period is
critical to her success.

Management of this
costly disease begins
with monitoring - but
blood testing isn't always
an option.

VAS’ Fresh Cow Summary features the Transition Cow Index®, a comprehensive and objective measure of transition cow management, allowing you to benchmark the effectiveness of your transition cow program for improved long-term profitability.

    • Compares your herd’s fresh cow performance to an industry standard
    • Evaluates transition management by month of calving with one year of history
    • Measures early lactation turnover
    • Calculates an expected 305-day milk production for each cow in the herd
    • Identifies individual cows with transition problems and those at risk for ketosis

Monitoring changes month to month will help you reach and achieve your dairy’s transition cow goals.

TCI® was developed in partnership with the University of Wisconsin School of Veterinary Medicine. Using data from over 550,000 cows, researchers developed algorithms to calculate expected 305-day milk production. This calculation uses factors such as prior lactation, age, milking frequency, breed, days dry, month of calving and more.

from large multi-site operations to small
VAS has the platform for you.
