Weight predictor report

The Weight predictor report is useful for identifying animals that are ready to go to the processor or predicting when they are likely to reach target weight.

The Weight predictor report can be used to produce a list showing the:

  • animals that will meet a weight target by a specified date
  • date on which each animal is predicted to reach a target weight
  • predicted weight that each animal will be on a specified finishing date.
You can select animals from this list and export them to a draft list in the correct format for your Gallagher or Tru-test drafting equipment.

  • have EID tags that are registered in FarmIQ and are linked to a mob in the System. Check the Stock list before you start and see Link EIDs to mobs if there are tags missing
