Group Weight

Overview

This chart provides the ability to select an animal group and view its weight metrics over time vs. a defined weight gain goal. This can be used to help understand whether a group is gaining weight at a desired level, the weight distribution of the group at any point along with animal counts. 

For a chart to be shown for a Farm, the Group Weight metric needs to be selected for an available quadrant and a Group needs to be selected along with the weight goal details. Once this is completed and saved, a chart similar to what is shown below will be displayed if the Group has multiple weight events recorded. 

The chart displays 4 lines and 2 shaded areas. These are as follows:

  • Goal line (red) - indicates the Group weight goal over time that is established by setting a start date/weight and end date/weight

  • Min/Max lines (yellow) - indicates the minimum and maximum weights for any weights recorded on specific dated

  • Average line (green) - indicates the average weight of all animals in the Group where weights were recorded on a specific date

  • Standard Deviation Range (green shading) - indicates the + & - standard deviation range (1 or 2 based on settings) of weights for animals in the Group where weights were recorded on a specific date

  • Min/Max Range (yellow shading) - indicates the range of min and max weights for animals in the Group where weights were recorded on a specific date

Select Group & Adjust Settings

To select/change a Group or the settings for a Group chart, select the tab for the animal type and then the SETTINGS link at the bottom right of the chart. This will display an overlay chart similar to what is shown below.

To select or change a Group you need to select:

  • The Group Type - ID or Non-ID

  • The Group Year

  • The Group Name - the available names will be based on the Animal Type, Group Type and Group Year selected

Note: Once a Group has been selected, any previously saved chart settings for the Group will be displayed. If no settings have been previously saved for the Group, these will be blank.

Once a Group has been selected, the chart details for the Group can be configured.

  • Weight Goal Line - these attributes will define a plotted line for desired Group average weight over time.

    • Goal Start Date​

    • Goal Start Weight

    • Goal End Date

    • Goal End Weight

    • Notes

      • If any entry is made, all other entries are required before SAVE enables

      • The Start and End Dates will define the time period shown for the chart

  • Standard Deviation Range - this will plot a shaded area above and below Average Weight line displaying the weights of animals that fall within the standard deviation selected. This will help you understand whether the min/max weights shown are outliers or not.

    • Standard Deviation

      • Select 1 to show the min/max of animals that fall within 68% of all animals in the weighing event​ (Default)

      • Select 2 to show the min/max of animals that fall within 95% of all animals in the weighing event

Note: The percentages shown above apply to data sets that follow a "normal", bell shaped distribution.
