Cattle Handling Facilities Enhancements
Grant Award: $3,000

Since he stopped growing tobacco in 2004, Mr. Braswell has been working to increase his cattle business by steadily growing his herd of Black Angus. To increase efficiency and productivity of his existing handling facilities, a weigh system will be added.

The weigh system will consist of a platform, weigh bars and a scale analyzer to assist in data management of his current and future herds. A modern weigh system will greatly contribute to the efficiency and productivity on the farm by decreasing the time, cost and effort of weighing cattle.

The system will also allow for more accurate data collection, which is instrumental for making sound decisions that will effect overall performance and selling times for maximum profits.
