Software Update: Move or Sell Cattle by Pen Now Available


Performance Livestock Analytics is excited to announce the newest update to the Performance Beef Platform: “ +/- Head by Pen”. This new feature will save producers time by giving them the ability to make headcount adjustments by pen with one simple entry.

The update allows producers to sell out, enter deaths, and create movements for the entire pen as well as by group. When operations sell a pen of cattle with multiple groups, users will no longer need to put in multiple group entries and divide up a check. It will now only take one simple entry, and Performance Beef will do the work for you. 

Whether moving or selling an entire pen or only a couple groups out of a pen, producers will have the ability to choose the option that best fits their operation to capture headcount changes as they happen. 

From operations that are weaning calves to those that are backgrounding or finishing, the new +/- Head feature will allow operations to easily keep up with movements around the feedyard. Watch the videos below to make headcount changes by pen.
