Liveweight Production

It is difficult to improve performance if you don’t know your starting point.  This tool aims to help mixed and drystock (beef and sheep) farmers calculate;

  • Stocking rate per ha.
  • The balance of beef and sheep on a farm.
  • Liveweight (LWT) produced per ha.
  • Total kilogrammes LWT produced annually.

This is an Excel based tool so must be downloaded to a laptop that can run this software.  It can be saved on your computer for future use.

This tool is consistent with the cost of production tool used by QMS, so you may also wish to visit the QMS website.
