There are many good reasons to weigh calves that are being prepared for sale or weaning. Using electronic identification will make that process easier, quicker and more accurate.
Penalties for light or overweight calves that miss the 100-110kg range could be severe. This can be particularly frustrating when analysed against the cost of inputs in both time and money. Growing calves that are healthy and gaining weight fast is the trick to maximising profits.
Using weighing and electronic identification can be the tool to assist you to focus on growth, individual animal health and managing target weights.
