GUELPH — The Ontario Sheep Farmers organization website now hosts a popular online tool that helps producers project both price and profit in their sector.
Available at no cost to OSF members, the farm management tool, which functions via web browser, was created several years ago in partnership with the University of Guelph and OMAFRA.
OSF recently assumed ownership of the tool and relocated the system to its own website. As part of the move, the organization says it implemented several upgrades to improve accuracy and ease of use. Pricing predictions for lambs in all weight categories are now available 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,” says Marc Carere, OSF Chair.
“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.”
