Weight is a very important indicator of herd health. Sudden increases or decreases in weight can signal the presence of disease. Regularly weighing your stock has many obvious benefits but with the correct system you can use it as a tool to:
- Ensure livestock are sold at optimum weight grade
- Minimise treatment waste
- Monitor reproductive performance
- Identify sick or lame animals early
- Manage your time spent in the yard
