Benefits of Being a MyHerd User

What are the benefits of being a MyHerd User?

The primary benefit you will find in being a MyHerd user, is that you will have access to an online report of your herd’s EPDs for active dams and calf crops from your herd. Additionally, the association provides new, convenient services through the use of MyHerd in the future. A sample of these services include unprecedented access to the AHA animal and EPD database, download facilities for data files from your herd to use with on-farm herd management software, on-line registrations and additional on-line reports, which are automatically emailed to you as soon as they are available, preventing delays in getting the information you need.
