Anglo Beef Processors has announced that it will now guarantee to pay for cattle on the day they are weighed.

Currently producers can receive an email detailing weights and grades on the day their cattle are processed with payment following shortly after, but the new facility allows a cheque to be released at the same time.

“By upgrading our IT systems, we can also offer further benefits to our producers through improved communication channels for the performance data of all their cattle,” an ABP spokesman said.

A new website gives producers free access to a live archive of data relating to cattle supplied over the past five years. It is hoped the changes will help producers improve their farming systems and provide a basis for greater transfer of information throughout the supply chain.
