A QUICK and easy way to help beef producers identify areas for improvement
in their beef enterprises has been launched by the English Beef and
Lamb Executive (EBLEX).
Beef Snapshot, unveiled at the Beef and Growing Cattle show in Hatherleigh,
Devon, is a fast and accurate way of assessing key performance areas
against industry standards.
From information supplied, performance indicators are given as a
traffic light colour highlighting underperformance (red), on target
(green) and scope for improvement (amber).
Beef Snapshot has been devised in partnership with the Red Meat
Industry Forum (RMIF) as part of the new EBLEX Beef Better Returns
EBLEX Beef BRP Project manager Netta de la Cour said, "Beef
Snapshot is a scaled down version of RMIF's comprehensive farm benchmarking
system. It uses a small number of key measures which most people
will readily know, to highlight where costs are on or off target".
A sheep enterprise version for both upland and lowland producers
is being trialled and will be launched later in the Autumn.
