Background to RMS

Over recent years we have seen a continuous decline in pregnancy production as farmers struggle to balance increasing herd sizes and higher yielding cows with a reduction in skilled staff being employed in agriculture. Research has shown that once the pregnancy rate falls below 13%, herds are no longer able to produce enough replacements to replenish the herd. The trend needs to be halted.

What is RMS?

RMS is a systematic approach to maximising pregnancy production, which works especially well on today’s large dairy farms.  A proven system, first introduced in the late 90’s on large Californian dairies, and now also operating in Italy, Australia, Canada and the UK.
