Submission of WEAN WEIGHTS

  Click here for the Excel spreadsheet - Submitting Weights & Scanning Information

  Take WEANING weights from 80 to 300 days (more or less 3 to 9 months)
  Weigh as many animals as possible on one date/day, i.e. donít weigh them as they are removed from their mothers.
  Donít estimate the weights; round them to the nearest kilogram.
  If some of the calves are treated differently than the rest, mark the weights of those animals with a management code. Eg. If there is a sick calf as well as a show calf in the group, mark the
    weight of the sick calf with an S and the weight of the show calf with a SK. These codes will put the weights in different groups in the analysis, and prevent the calves from being compared
    directly with each other or the others in the group.
  If possible, also take the weights of the dams of the calves you weighed.
  Complete the performance information on the required forms (HerdMaster, Excel spreadsheet of Office weigh form) and send electronically (if possible) to the Office.
