  • PPP is the price per pound ($/lb)

To calculate Cattle Value, multiply the weight of the cattle by the price per pound.

How to Calculate Cattle Value?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Cattle Value.

  1. First, determine the total weight of all cattle (lbs). 
  2. Next, determine the price per pound ($/lb). 
  3. Next, gather the formula from above = CATV = CW * PPP.
  4. Finally, calculate the Cattle Value.
  5. After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.
