This application is designed for Texas sheep and goat producers to predict the change in value of light weight slaughter lambs and kid goats. The program requires producers to designate the month they intend to sell their animals, the weight of the animals, and cost of gain if they were to retain ownership. Thereafter, the application uses market data collected from Producers Livestock Auction Co. in San Angelo, TX dating back to 2010 to predict change in value (Marginal Revenue) based on month, weight gain, and cost of gain. The application does not forecast actual prices, but rather estimates the change in per head value that normally occurs in the market based on month and market weight. The application also reports the current value ($/Hd) and market price ($/Cwt.) and has a link to USDA-Agricultural Marketing Service reports, so that producers can easily assess current market conditions.
Ratings and Reviews
Pleased and impressed
This app has everything I need in one place, and it’s simple, user friendly layout is super easy to use. This app has eased the stress of managing my business, and I highly recommend it to anyone who asks. Just really impressed and I plan on using it for all future purchases.
This is such a neat concept. I never would’ve thought to have my phone do goat/sheep selling research for me but wow is it convenient!
I have owned goats my entire life and no app has ever been this functional! Will never use another app again!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
