Calculations used in our performance data.Daily GainThis is how we calculate the Daily Gain of an animal: For example let us say that we have an 800lb calf with a 95lb birth weight = 705lb of
weight gained since birth. Let us say the calf was born Jan. 2, and weighed on Jul
31 thus it is 210 days old so: 205 Day Adjusted WeightTo find the 205 day adjusted weight you take the daily gain from the weight
closest to 205 days and multiply by 205 and add the birth weight. WPDATo find the Weight Per Day Of Age (WPDA) of an animal, you take the weight at weighing
very nearly or exactly at 365 days of age and divide by the actual age in days. No
deduction is made for birth weight in these numbers as the effect is negligible by this
age: 365 Day Adjusted WeightTo find the 365 day adjusted weight you take the daily gain from the weight
closest to 365 days and multiply by 365.
