GPP 1 - Accurate Record Keeping GPP 4 - Proper
Care and Handling

Keeping Accurate Records
3
Keeping Records
  • Keeping records is an important part of any
    livestock operation/project.
  • Accurate records let you identify specific
    animals for medication, analyze your efficiency,
    and find changes you could make to improve your
    operation/project.
  • Any records kept are better than no records at
    all.

4
Animal Identification
  • Proper identification is key to good management.
    If each animal is clearly identified, keeping
    records on treatments becomes a lot easier.
  • Ear tag at county weight in
  • Ear notch and/or tag Swine
  • Tattoo Breeding Beef

5
Animal Identification
6
Keeping Accurate Records
  • Three main areas of record keeping
  • Individual Animal Records
  • Process Verification
  • Production Records

7
Individual Animal Records
  • Lets you know which animal belongs to whom.
  • Allows you compare performance of these animals
  • Selecting replacement females
  • Selecting animals for your project
  • Determining rate of gain

8
Process Verification
  • Any time you use medications or growth promotants
    in your livestock project, it is important
    identify the individual animal and their
    treatments.
  • Animal ID
  • Date
  • Product
  • Dosage
  • Method of treatment (I.M., S.Q., I.V.)
  • Location of injection (neck)
  • Who administered it
  • Withdrawal times (label)

Feed Records
  • It is very important to read your feed labels and
    keep copies of your feed labels.
  • Keep records on how much you feed an individual
    animal. (production records)

13
Production Records
  • Production records let you measure animal and
    business performance.
  • Examples
  • Average daily gain
  • Weaning weights
  • Litter weights
  • Pounds of milk in dairy cattle

14
Production Records
  • Business records can show how profitable the
    operation is.
  • Records from different years can be compared to
    see how your livestock project has progressed.

Proper Care and Handling
16
Care and Handling
  • The way you care for your animals can have a big
    impact on how they will grow and how they will
    behave.

17
Animal Needs
  • Three basic needs all animals have.
  • Feed
  • Water
  • Environment

18
Feed
  • Feed will be covered in more detail a little
    later, but you need to be sure they have the
    proper ration for the kind of growth you expect.

19
Water
  • Make sure water is clean and fresh.
  • Would you rather drink clean or muddy water?
  • Make sure they have enough water everyday.
  • Water is critical for survival and growth.

Environment
  • Animal Environment Includes
  • Space
  • Temperature
  • Cleanliness

22
Space
Environment
  • Is there enough space for the animal to eat,
    sleep and exercise?
  • Use space requirement tables to determine how
    much space an animal needs.references upon request

23
Temperature
Environment
  • Different animals prefer different temperatures,
    this is called their comfort zone.
  • Production variables can decline if an animal is
    outside its comfort zone for too long.

25
Ways To Control Temperature
  • Heat
  • Misting systems
  • Sprinkle area (evaporative cooling)
  • Fans (air movement)
  • Shade (prevents radiation)
  • Cold
  • Deeper bedding (insulation)
  • Shelter (prevent drafts)
  • House animals together to increase body heat
    exchange.

26
Cleanliness
Environment
  • Clean environment reduces the amount and spread
    of disease organisms.
  • Regular removal of waste doesnt allow for the
    growth of microorganisms which may lead to
    digestive or respiratory problems.
  • Manure build up also provides an environment for
    fly populations to multiply.

27
Handling
  • Handling animals carefully is another way to
    prevent injury or physical contamination of meat
    (bruising,etc.).
  • Animals two main instincts are fight or flight.
  • Slow quiet movements.
  • Reduce the use of buzzers and prods.
  • Interaction at feeding time.

28
The Flight Zone
29
Stress
  • Heat, cold or excitement can all cause stress.
  • Changes in feed, illness or movement can also
    cause stress.
  • Stress can ultimately reduce appetite, production
    and also effect the quality of meat they produce.

30
Reducing Stress
  • Have animal well broke to reduce excitement of
    the show.
  • Keep animals on regular feeding and exercise
    schedule.
  • Get animals accustomed to strange or flavored
    water.
  • Try not to mix animals at shows to avoid fighting.

31
Conclusion
  1. Accurate records are essential for tracking
    medications given and performance characteristics
    in livestock projects.
  2. Proper care and handling of livestock animals
    ensures the safety and well being of both you and
    your animal.
