The latest report aims to help cattle owners accurately measure the weight of their cattle, thus significantly reducing or eliminating the losses associated with sending over-fat cattle to slaughter. According to recent estimates, UK producers may lose up to £12.5 million per year in over feeding, a cost which can be substantially reduced by using accurate measurement techniques.

The Ritchie Beef Monitor is a walk-over cattle weighing solution that allows cattle to be weighed multiple times per day in a convenient and accessible process.

The report explains that the unit is installed in such a way that cattle can access the water trough only by stepping on the weighing platform. EID tags are used to record the accurate weight of each animal and store the data in the cloud.

Readers will also find a list of the breeds the Ritchie Beef Monitor is ideal for. Though it can be used to measure any cattle, the highest return on investment is obtained with high-value breeds such as Limousin, Aberdeen Angus and British Blue.

A satisfied user said: “This system is giving us the accuracy I could not achieve by eye and without which I’d have to weigh manually. We’ve been weighing pedigree animals conventionally for a long time and I have always liked to think I have a good eye for assessing weight, but I know it is not necessarily so. The system flags up all animals calculated to be 100kg off finishing, so it’s definitely a big help for us.”
