Measure your flocks and track the feed-conversion-ratio of your chickens Farmbrite makes it easy to track the weight of your birds and check them against breed growth standards and targets, but did you know you can also see how effective your feed is by reviewing your feed conversion ratio and the animal's average daily gain?

  4. Use standard and custom reports to identify trends Farmbrite comes loaded with dozens of pre-built dashboards and standard reports to help you make sense of all the farm data you've collected.
