The Accuracy of Market Reporters under Liveweight Selling Conditions

Abstract

A series of trials was conducted to test the accuracy of livestock market reporters under liveweight selling conditions in Victoria using a range of cattle types. The performance of the market reporters in carcass weight and fat cover estimation was poorer for cows than for bullocks, while the accuracy of the estimates for bullocks sold under liveweight was similar to that reported earlier for young cattle sold on a per head basis.
