Live Bird Receiving


Software for the Food Industry - Live Bird Receiving

CAT²’s Live Bird Receiving (LBR) application allows evisceration departments to collect and manage meaningful production-related data in real time, including trucks’ waiting time in fan bays and yard shrink as well as DOAs, line speeds, efficiencies, and downtime.

Live Bird Weighing seamlessly transfers lot information to LBR, and LBR, in turn, transfers lot information to CAT²’s on-line Inspection and Disposition application. LBR also tracks grower data including average bird weight, DOAs, rejects, farm condemns, and yields across all deliveries and generates profiles to rank growers by performance.
