Record-keeping tool for beef producers available

The Beef Cattle Research Council has released Level 2 of its online record-keeping and benchmarking tool. The tool allows producers to collect and save data so it can be analyzed and used for better management decisions.

Level 1 was designed for producers who are new to record-keeping or who keep records but are unsure of what info is worth keeping or how these records can be used. The Level 2 resource goes more in depth on some of the analysis that can be done.

It covers topics such as animal health and performance (including body condition scoring and calculating pounds weaned per cow), forage and feed (such as feed waste and winter rations), and genetics (including heifer and bull replacement and culling decisions).

The tool can be found at beefresearch.ca.
