Red Sky Farm Performance Analysis benchmark data is available to download into your database. These benchmarks will be regularly produced by Red Sky and be made available through the provision of logins and passwords so they can be retrieved to your database.
When you first install Red Sky there is some example data immediately available which represent a New Zealand dairy farm, an Australian dairy farm, a New Zealand 50:50 sharemilker/sharefarmer and a mixed sheep, beef and other farm.
To obtain this benchmark data after installing the program you go to the second wizard screen and enter ‘Retrieve Farmer/Clients’ or go to the Main Menu and ‘Farmer/Clients’ then ‘Retrieve’.
Any data that you have either entered yourself and synchronised with the server or retrieved from the server can then be used as comparison data (accessed via the Comparison button at the bottom of the Red Sky screen), which allows you to view this alongside the data that you are presently completing.
Under the Definitions & Data Entry tab there is a list of the most important Key Performance Indicators for each farming type and a description of how these are calculated, as well as a list of Definitions for most ratios produced by Red Sky.
