Today’s customary cattle feeding practices results in pens of cattle that are too diverse in size and stage of maturity to return the full economic value that they should. An effective, yet economical method is now available to help manage cattle diversity and that returns true value from sorting cattle and which can also help maximize feed pen utilization.
The Cattle Classification and Sorting System (CCSS) was developed to return net value to cattle feeders using an effective yet economical science-based method to sort cattle into feeding pens that are more uniform and produces consistent results. The system is easy to operate and administrate and integrates with existing feedyard operations and information systems without adding complicated record-keeping burden. The CCSS is a science-based system that both captures the added value benefit that comes from objectively sorting cattle.
