Guide
1
measure the brightness of the animal in the morning, before you eat it.This helps you get as close to the correct result, since the weight of the day during the bull varies depending on various factors - the contents of the stomach, the bladder, the intestines, the water content in the body (which is also not a constant value).So get up early, take a centimeter measuring tape and go into the pen.
2
Learn chest of the animal for his shoulder blades.To do this you must first get the bull to stand right - right, his head level with the back.Then (it is easier to do it together) wrap around his torso measuring tape.Mark the l
ength of the measured part of the body of the animal.
3
Measure oblique length of the trunk bull.It is measured as measuring tape, only this time measurement is derived from the glenohumeral joint to the root of the tail.Glenohumeral joint - it is the convex part of the body located on the front leg of the animal.See the image below to avoid mistakes in the choice of the points between which you want to measure the distance.
4
Record details of both measurements.Now consider the table given below.With it you can determine the approximate live weight of the animal, having the data received by you in the previous steps.In order to determine the weight and find the match-detection you in the column trunk girth behind the shoulders.Then find the value in the top line of the oblique circumference of the trunk that you have found.Now find the intersection of these two parameters.This is the approximate weight of your animal.
5
Put the animal on the scales, if you have the opportunity.This is the easiest way out, although its application should not forget that the weight of the animal is also measured in the morning before feeding and changes throughout the day.
6
measures the weight of slaughtered animal with the help of weights.However, this is different from the weight of live weight.To measure slaughter weight weigh only the body of the bull, without head, lower legs and internal organs.
