MANAGEMENT SYSTEM FOR STOCKERS AND BACKGROUNDERS
Stocker1™ is an internet-based system that is accessible to stocker and backgrounding operations from any location with internet service. One look and you will know it was designed in the field for close interaction between stocker and backgrounder operators.
Stocker1™ allows you to easily record the unique activities that occur on stocker and backgrounding operations.
Such activities include numerous moves, merging groups together and splitting groups up, with the system rolling the costs forward so a current break-even is known.
The goal of Stocker1™ is to allow the operator to simply enter information on their cattle and then see all cumulative costs and the current break-even on a set of cattle at any time, allowing for better marketing decisions.
With Stocker1™, cattle inventories can be viewed on a group or location basis. From the list of groups or locations, the details for each can be drilled down into quickly, viewing placement or shipment information, current weights and current break-evens. Reporting is also available, from summary to detailed reports.
The breakeven is shown for the group based on per head, per CWT, COG D.I. (cost of gain, deads in) and COG D.O. (cost of gain, deads out).
Users are not restricted to a single ration for a location for the day. Additional rations may be fed to a location such as stepping up with a starter ration in the morning and a grower ration for the afternoon feeding.
