    Producer Tools Beef production is a complicated business. Producers have to wear many hats and have to make many complicated decisions that affect the outcome of their business. ​ Below are some tools, brought to you by organizations like BCRC and the Saskatchewan Forage Council, that producers can utilize when making some of those decisions. Home Grain crop as feed negotiation worksheet This decision-making tool, from BCRC, was developed to help beef producers work with their neighbors to determine a value for salvaged crops. ​ Click icon to download the worksheet. Click icon to download calculator. BCRC Backgrounding Calculator This decision-making tool is designed to identify economic opportunities and risks from backgrounding or preconditioning cattle by providing a summary of estimated net returns. ​ AHEM - Animal Health Emergency Management ​ The Animal Health Emergency Management (AHEM) project is focused on industry relevant resources to minimize the impacts of serious livestock diseases now and into the future. Click on the links below for the AHEM handbook and website. Handbook link: AHEM_SCA_Handbook.pdf AHEM website: Animal Health Emergency Management (AHEM) project Tool for Evaluating Feed Test Results ​ When you don't know the quality of feed on an operation, maintaining animal health and welfare can become significantly more difficult. Visual assessment of feedstuffs is not accurate enough to access quality and may lead to cows being underfed and losing body condition, or wasting money on expensive supplements that aren't necessary.
