Herd Health understand how farms work. The fundamental farming problem is how to efficiently combine resources, labour and capital profitably and ethically to produce profitably. This is universal to all farming systems. Good farmers innately know how to do this in a way that is compatible with their desired lifestyle. The problems of farming are becoming more complicated and the margins from farming are being squeezed. Increasingly, more farmers are using automation and relying on data to support their decision making. We understand that ‘while it is easy to lie with statistics, it is even easier to lie without them’ (Hans Kuhn).
Our understanding of farming systems helps us to drag knowledge out of data. We focus on presenting new information to our clients in ways that best help them make the right decisions.
