Importance Of Healthy Calves At The Backgrounder
Utilizing stockers and backgrounders to get cattle up to feed and in good health can play a very important role prior to cattle entering the feedlot. These calves have just been weaned and are going through an important growth and training stage before they enter the feedlot. Cattle are learning how to eat at the bunk and consuming a concentrate diet, all while battling any new diseases and stressors.

Quantified Ag® Has A Simple Process
Our smart ear tags are individually monitoring the health status of the cattle at your feedlot. Each ear tag collects and sends encrypted biometric and behavioral data wirelessly to a central receiver.
Our system generates health alerts and sends them to an online pull list that can be accessed on a mobile phone or printed off from our cloud-based management software.
