How’s my average daily gain?

Why bother to record animal weights?


A few reasons may be to monitor feed efficiency, liveweight gain or to administer correct dosage rates to stock. A big one for many is to see if stock are on track for target breeding weight. Maybe you only weigh animals to be compliant for schemes?


Whatever the reason, allow AgriNet HerdApp to help you with the recording of this data. When you have an animal on the scales type their number in & record their weight.


Set targets for dairy replacement heifers or other breeds at calving and AgriNet HerdApp will track this progress effortlessly. AgriNet HerdApp will tell you the animals average daily gain since the last weighing.


As you are recording weights you are building up a picture of the animals performance. Having this information easily at hand allows you to make more informed management decisions. If an animal is underweight or overweight you can act to draft the animal out of the crush.



Research has shown for every half-hour spent sorting and loading cattle, their weight will shrink by up to 0.5 percent. Therefore it is important for stock to be moved as efficiently as possible during weighing process. Having this animal information available on your phone can massively aid the recording process and decisions after.
