The key to meeting customer needs is to understand the market specifications. To deliver beef cattle to a specification, producers need to assess and monitor animal growth, manage the feedbase, regularly evaluate marketing options, and seek feedback on animal performance.
The BeefSpecs calculator is a tool to manage cattle to meet weight and fat specifications. The calculator assists cattle producers in making more accurate management decisions that could increase carcase compliance rates for fatness and weight targets specific to various beef markets.
It is housed on the NSW Department of Primary Industries website and can be accessed at this link - BeefSpecs calculator
