It ensures you capture every dollar, every pound without the stress of copying records. You’ll use it daily to improve accuracy on your operation.   

“Performance Beef accounts for everything. It alleviates shrink by automatically accounting for losses due to over or under filling.” – Doug Schmitt, Kansas

Improve Feeding Consistency

The analytics within Performance Beef allow you to monitor daily dry matter intake and feed delivery times. Performance Beef allows you to monitor the net energy of maintenance per head and feed delivery times to ensure your diet is mixed consistently and delivered on time, day after day. This consistency not only helps maintain feed intake but also minimizes opportunities for acidosis. 

“With Performance Beef, we track intakes, watch the data, and correct a problem before it is a real big problem.” – Jeremy Row, Nebraska

Better Manage Inventory and Costs

Feed and animal health are the most significant costs you can control on your operation. Use Performance Beef to accurately capture and monitor expenses. It is your digital assistant for real-time financial and performance information helping you make better marketing and management decisions. If you’re a custom feeder, you’re able to create accurate invoices within minutes with a couple clicks.

“We’re able to track the expenses on the cattle we own down to the penny.” – Mike Manion, Nebraska

Connect with Trusted Advisors

Do you rely on laminated batch sheets from your nutritionist? Ditch the batch sheets and use Performance Beef to digitally connect with your nutritionist. They can make real-time ingredient or ration changes while monitoring performance to help you make the best management decisions. You can also use Performance Beef to provide other trusted advisors a snapshot of your financials and performance information.

“Everyone involved in our operation can access the information. We can all track the information without having to stop and take someone else aside.” – Jill Weber Vanderwal, Minnesota
