On-line price and profit tool for sheep producers

Members of Ontario Sheep Farmers (OSF) now can get the latest price and profit predictability tools to manage their farms and cash flow.

OSF, the University of Guelph and the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs created the farm management tool.

OSF now owns the tool and it applied several updates to improve accuracy and ease of use. Pricing predictions for lambs in all weight categories are now available within the updated price predictions for one to four weeks.

“The price and profit predictability tools will continue to be a go-to resource for producers to make decisions and provide information on prices they could expect at auction,” said OSF chairman Marc Carere.

“This updated data goes back seven years, making this tool even more useful for producers and we’re pleased it will remain available on the OSF website.”
