Calling all Herd Improvement businesses that carry our artificial inseminations. NHIA needs 5 minutes of your time to complete the second National Herd Improvement Data Collection Survey.

Why? Because it is all about harnessing our collective knowledge and expertise to build a stronger herd improvement sector.

Take me there I’ll do the Data Collection Survey now!

It’s important!

Did you know that our first National Herd Improvement Data Collection Survey led to over $1 million in funding that directly benefits the entire HI sector? True story. NHIA CEO Sara Merckel explains how the survey could help you in the video below.

The data assisted Dairy Australia in gaining a grant for a new fundamental AI training course, plus supplying simulation model cows to Tafe’s in Victoria, a win for the industry as a whole with this work carrying on throughout the current year.

Designed to collect information to build a stronger herd improvement sector it captured among other things professional technician data vs DIY, and the average number of annual inseminations.

This information is crucial to identify training opportunities and gaps that need review, a key focus of NHIA work.

This project is ongoing, with year-on-year results able to chart the health and needs of Australia’s AI and herd improvement industry.
