MAPLE PLAIN, Minn. — The Minnesota State Cattlemen’s Association (MSCA) and Performance Livestock Analytics have formed a partnership to bring Cattle Krush, a marketing tool to aid cattlemen from all sectors of the beef industry gain insights to ensure profit opportunities are not missed, to MSCA members.
“We recognize livestock plays a major role in production agriculture, yet it remains underserved in data management programs.” – Dustin Balsley, COO – Performance Livestock Analytics
This services, typically $75/month or $900/year, will be free to all MSCA members!
Cattle Krush ensures buying and selling decisions are made with real time data. Set profit goals, receive text alerts, and connect your advisors to your profit alerts all in one, simple to use app. Cattle Krush is designed to assist buying and selling decisions by calculating profit opportunities from the Chicago board of trade futures markets in feeder cattle, live cattle and corn.
“With recent market volatility and shrinking margins within the beef industry, whether you’re marketing feeder calves or fat cattle, identifying all potential profit opportunities is crucial to the viability of your farm or ranch.” Krist Wollum, President – Minnesota State Cattlemen’s Association.
The “Auction” tool within the Cattle Krush program calculates real-time profit margins to help both the cow/calf producer and the feedyard owner ensure feeder cattle asking prices are profitable for the ranch owner and competitive for the feedyard owner. This function can be utilized in the auction barn, with online auctions and in straight off the ranch sales. In addition to the auction advisor tool, cattlemen benefit from the “My Lots” function. This function allows the feedyard to import cattle currently on feed to track and monitor profit opportunities. “My Lots” will also send you a text and email alert if a profit opportunity is achievable on a group of cattle. This function also allows the cow/calf producers, bankers and commodity brokers to monitor feedlot margins to assist in setting fair feeder cattle prices.
