AMES, Iowa, May 22, 2019 - Performance Livestock Analytics has released new analytics updates within Performance Beef. The enhancements provide more granular performance data to each producer, as well as increase real-time data analytics for nutritionists who are providing management suggestions to beef producers through the Performance Beef platform.
“Daily intake of net energy of maintenance per head, when combined with dry matter as a percent of body weight allows customers to evaluate ration consistency over the feeding period,” explains Justin Sexten, Ph.D., vice president of strategy, Performance Livestock Analytics. “While the amount of feed delivered may not change from day to day, this new tool allows a quick evaluation of ingredient mixing.”
The update includes three new charts: “Amount As Fed & Dry Matter (per Body Weight)”, “As Fed & Dry Matter (per LB Gain)”, and “NEm (per Head)”.

The NEm chart will be available per pen, while Dry Matter & As Fed (Per Lb of Gain), and Dry Matter & As Fed (Per Body Weight) will be available per group.
