Some of the first results from the KPI (Key Performance Indicator) work we are doing with AHDB are published (click here).

Also take a look at the YouTube video which shows how the cattle dance and play when the new bedding goes into the pens.

This work will help beef producers track performance and identify their business strengths and weaknesses.  AHDB Beef and Lamb is currently working with the University of Nottingham to evaluate KPIs for beef production systems and develop further ideas.

One of the most important KPIs to be monitored is daily liveweight gain.  Here we already record this, weighing an animal on arrival and on departure. At the same time we keep financial data on every animal that comes through the unit, so it becomes easy to link physical and financial parameters.
