Updated over a week ago

Graph Overview

The default view will be 4 graphs of animal weight data shown above your individual animals list.

Projected Live Weight vs Age

This is the projected weight for a particular day vs the age of each animal in months. Note: The date will automatically default to today.

The projected weight is calculated by adding the latest average daily gain x the days since last weight record to your previous weight value.

Live Weights Over Time

This shows the increase (or decrease) for a given animal over time where the X Axis is the animals age in months. Each line represents an animal.

Projected Live Weight

This shows the frequency (Y axis) of animals within a particular weight range.

Average Daily Gain

This is similar to the Weight Histogram (3) except it shows ranges of Average Daily Gain. The ADG is calculated by finding the increase (or decrease) between the last 2 weigh events divided by the number of days in between those weigh events.
