Cattle Krush was developed by Performance Livestock Analytics in 2015. Within the application there are several different tools. First, the “Auction” tool will help to eliminate the bias involved in buying cattle whether you are in the auction house or bidding online. The “Auction” tool allows you to receive real-time profits per head on the cattle that you are bidding on, based on the Chicago Board of Trade.
Cattle Krush allows you to track the profitability on your current lots of cattle. “My Lots” works by projecting when your current cattle on feed will hit their target finish weight and pulls that month’s Live Future Price to calculate your profit per head. Another great feature of “My Lots” is that you can set your profit goal for your current cattle on feed and receive a text or email notification when that goal is reached.
Eliminate the need to have multiple tabs to view the different ag markets, with the “Markets” tab you will be able to view a list of the feed cattle, live cattle, and the corn prices from the Chicago Board of Trade all on one screen.
Eliminate any questions on the profits of your current and future groups of cattle with the “Krush” function. Simply enter the start and finish weight, rate of gain, today’s cost of gain, and the live or feeder basis and it will give you krush calculations for multiple months.
If you like to have historical data to assist in your buying decision, then the “History” tab will help you analyze the high and low profits of any group type over the past 30 years. See when profits historically spiked or fell to maximize confidence when buying cattle in the future.
The goal of Cattle Krush is to make our producers jobs just a little easier by eliminating some of the guessing and stress that comes along with buying cattle.
